PHYSICAL CONDITION - Very Good. There are normal traces of wear and age on the body and finish, a few small ding on the backside of the neck, otherwise, it's in great shape for its age. The action looks a bit high but it's playable and feels great. 

The fretboard, tuning pegs, and bridge are in great shape, overall, the structure is solid and in very good condition.

WORKING CONDITION - Very Good. This guitar plays very smoothly, the high action has a minor effect on the intonation past the 7th fret, but in a way that would be suitable for blues and folk recordings with an intentional rustic vibe. This is one of the models with a truss rod that isn't readily adjustable, so the skill of a trained luthier would be needed to make any changes to the neck.

That said, the guitar is perfectly usable as it is, with a bright sound and great ease of use along its grip-friendly neck. Everything else about this guitar is solid and highly charismatic!
