A friend of mine was gifted this by a family member who was the original owner but it was put in the attic and forgotten about. When he discovered it the bridge was screwed and was in need a repair. He gave it to me as he had no want for it and after replacing the bridge and Straightening the neck, with a set of D'addarios on it it plays surprisingly well. I plug it in every so often for a more vintage feel. The leather coated humbuckers are a nice touch.
