This Carvin 61-JSG 1961 Electric Guitar is absolutely beautiful with a complete maple body and a rosewood fingerboard. There isn’t a glossy finish on this guitar but it’s nice and smooth and the wood graining is gorgeous. The words on the headstock of the guitar read ‘Carvin Corvina, Calf.” Except for a few little scratches that you can barely see on the back and a little scuff on the side the finish is spotless. It comes in the original gray Carvin case which is wearing on the edges but is still solid. This instrument was definitely a closet instrument it looks like it was hardly ever played. It plays fantastic and it’s just come back from our pro guitar tech where it had a complete check-up and set-up.
