Through-neck design by Paul Bigbsy. This one has pots dated June 1957, and has an adjustable truss rod, unlike the 1955 model. The neck is quite slender for a '50s guitar. Reportedly it has a chambered body, but it feels pretty solid to me, and the gtr overall is about the same weight as my H44 Stratotone...
