This is the most beautiful & all original example of a very early 1st year production Country Club we have ever had in our 30 years in biz, its Cadillac Green finish is incredibly clean other than some weather checking having only slight play wear still retaining all of its original finish, its 2 D’Armond pickups are super smooth & have that fantastic bold tone one can only hope for from these fabulous Clubs, its factory pearloid Block inlaid ebony fingerboard is clean with its original frets have only slight wear, its Gold pickgard finishes her off perfectly, all Gold hardware, its Grover Imperial Tuners tuners work quite well, it still sports her original 1st issue plain Gold knobs w/no arrow engravings, its Melita Bridge intonates well & its “G” cutout tailpiece complete its look, its multi-laminted bound body & neck are really excellent w/hardly any chrystalizing, its label inside is still very legible & its got untouched electronics,  just in from its last 30+ year ownership, other than its headstock outer wings need to be reglued (in our shop as we speak), its exceptionally clean & one of the most original & best Caddy Green Clubs in the World, she comes with what appears to be its original Black Lifton hard case.
