Cosmetics: This guitar has a light scratch on the back of the body from the neck plate to the plastic back plate. There is a small crack in the pickguard near the volume knob where it appears someone has tightened the pickguard screw down too far. There is small line of checking near the bass side of the tremolo system on the top of the body and near the pickguard close to the fretboard. There is pick wear on the pickguard. There is a small dent in the finish on the top edge of the body (See Photos).

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Weight: 8 lbs., 2 oz.
