1961 Panoramic Made in Italy

$975.00

This 1960s Italian Panaramic electric guitar is in outstanding playing condition. It has lots of finish cracks running across the top. There are no body cracks and the guitar is fully stable. There is one place where some of the finish was chipped off (see pics). The finish cracks have come to define the look of the guitar for sure. The guitar though is an outstanding player. Light, durable, very low action, no buzzing, newly set up, comfortable neck, good frets — just an all around great player. And the sound is just great… It’s just something that can’t be reproduced with reissues. I see why these are so sought after. (We sold the last one we had to Ben Folds, so that’s cool!)

We cleaned all of the electronics vigorously including rotary switch. We filed some stripped out wood where the holes were for the screws. We installed a new switchcraft jack. We fixed some grounding issues to the bridge, stabilized some of the finished cracking with clear grain filler, fixed some fret issues (the high frets were already filed down previously, the will need to be replaced some time in the future). We gave the guitar a professional setup and strung it with new 10-46 gauge strings. It plays like a dream and sounds even better.
