The back and sides retain the original finsh - though it has been oversprayed rather badly with lacquer. It appears that the "binding" was repainted before the oversray was put down. The Silvertone logo is intact on the peg head. These tuners are period replacements. The "block inlays" on the fingerboard are painted on. As far as I can tell, this guitar is made entirely out of solid birch. This instrument is almost identical to the 1975 Harmony flat top seen elsewere in this collection, except for size of the sound hole, the shape of the peg head and the neck is a little chunkier. It has a big, full-bodied sound and I have set it up to play very nicely.
