Pickups/Hardware: Kluson-style tuners, one pickup (rated at 3.6 kOhms), two-way switch turns tone control on and off, one volume and one tone control
Cosmetic Condition: This fella has some serious vintage vibe! The top has some minor blemishes and the dose of checking keep this Alden looking well-loved. The sides have a their fare share of checking as well with a bit of edge wear, or as we like to call it: serious character. The back is in surprisingly good shape with that lovely checking present. Some finish has been scratched off the sides of the neck as makeshift fret markers and the headstock has a bit of edge wear that’s unsurprising of a piece this old. This H-45 is out of this world!
Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.
Modifications/Repairs: The tuners, volume pot, and bridge have been replaced and there has been a decorative plastic piece glued on at the tailpiece.
