I own a 1976, I think is the year. Nice wine red. They only made them for 4 years. It is a great guitar in every way. Easy to play on a comfortable mid girth neck. Extremely resonant on it's own ,unamplified, and sounds great through a Fender or Marshall with obviously different impact for each. Great for rock, blues, lead, rhythm, or jazz. I have a few nice guitars and go to this one more often than the others, so that tells me something. Compare it to my Gibson cs446, Guild Nightbird, 72 Fender tele thinline which are the others of that era, more or less.
