PHYSICAL CONDITION : Very Good- This guitar shows moderate to regular use as it has some pick marks on the pick guard. The fret-board has three clay dot markers missing. The frets are in great condition with no divots. It appears that it was re-fretted at some point. There's a small 1/2" x 1/4" chip at the top of the back of the neck. One of the strap buttons is missing.

WORKING CONDITION : Very Good. Warm and familiar neck with very nice action and inviting naturally aged fretboard. This was a guitar played by a professional and set-up for contemporary use with the newer electronics and pots etc. So it is a practical mix of genuine vintage relic and modern touches, The chip on the back of the neck is high enough so it doesn't affect your playing. The neck is straight, there's no dead notes on the frets and it plays Great, but a fresh set-up would dial it in to perfection.

ACTUAL WEIGHT : 15 lbs (Case + Guitar)

ACTUAL DIMS : 41" x 5" x 16"
