This guitar is in very good condition for its age and has undergone a full in-store professional inspection and setup by our in-store luthiers. The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and exhibits only light fretwear. Cosmetically, the finish at the top, sides and back of the body exhibits various superficial scratches and playwear, as well as a handful of small to medium dings and dents. There is a small finish crack at the neck heel that does not effect structural integrity. There are some small dings to the end of the headstock and the tremolo arm is missing. The hardware shows an amount of aging/tarnishing and there is some art paint leftover on the knobs,  all of which can be seen in photos. Non-original hard shell case is included.
