    Here is a photo of a beautiful 63 Fiesta red in beautiful condition with its original mint JMI case. She is paired with a 1961 Vox AC15 with fawn tolex. Hope you enjoy it.

    It’s really beautiful. It is virtually in new condition. This one was under the bed. The gentleman passed away and his wife sold it to a collector. I studied hard before acquiring this one. Most of them were repainted over sunburst. This is not. The JMI case may be more rate than the guitar. Really a nice example.

    So it's a full Hank Marvin rig? You need a tape echo with that.

    Talk about a case queen. That's worthy of a climate controlled environment right there.

    Nice!
    As mint as they come. The Jennings case is not extremely rare, but the condition of the guitar is.
    Guncotton?

    Looks straight out of a museum. Any reason you call it a 63 when the neck date is Dec 62?

    It needs to see some action in some rough pub gigs after after all those years of idleness:whistling:.

    Pots are dated january 1963... so if we follow the logic that the year of production is the latest date you can find on the guitar, it's a 1963 ;)

    I just drooled all over my computer and now my keyboard doesn't work. I had to type this post using dictation.

    Yep. I remember us drooling over the listing a few years back, and pondering their "appointment only" shop policy o_O

    They've sure had some nice guitars through their door, and this is as good as they get!
