Otherwise, nothing has been altered, modified, nor replaced. It retains the original iconic Butterscotch blonde finish, the original Bakelite black pickgaurd, combined with the classic maple neck. At just 6 lbs. 14 oz., and with extremely efficient pickups, this is the Black Guard worth owning, as it sustains with an unbelievably resonant qualities.
