CONDITION:
This guitar is 100% original and it is in very good condition. The finish is very clean. There is only a very small amount of paint wear near the bottom edges and the edges on the side next to the binding, which is in good condition but has darkened a little with age. One small piece of grounding wire tape has been attached from under the pickguard to the tailpiece/bridge to decrease the single coil hum. It is a beautiful guitar that plays nicely and sounds sweet.
