Original tuners. original black finish.  Long 26 1/2" scale length which contributes to its classic Stella growl! Has had a neck reset, repaired top cracks, new bone nut and replacement rosewood bridge, maple bridge plate patched and re-drilled, back and side separations re-glued, original black finish touched up in several areas. Comes with new hardshell case.
