Got a deal and bought with the intention of fixing it up a bit and flipping it, but I may hold on to it for a while. It has one tuner replaced and the volume/tone controls are disconnected. The original slider switch is missing and the pickups wired to just a 3 way toggle switch, which is in place of one of the original pots. Bridge is not original. Not sure if the finish is. I think I've seen these in gold before, but can't find a picture of one now. One tuner has been replaced. All that aside, it looks, plays and sounds great. The neck is really yellow and heavily checked. I'll put a bunch of pictures of it up when I wake up.

Here's one family shot for now. '61 Höfner 172 > '63-4 Höfner 175 > '69/72 Jazzmaster > '68 Teisco ET-312. Not pictured are my '61 Old Kraftsman arch top and my late '70s Univox LP copy.

Thanks! Love the JM way more as a main guitar, but I'm really missing my Maverick lately.
