ACCESSORIES INCLUDED: This item comes as seen in photos, includes a non-original hard case and does not include any accessories.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - All parts are original and the guitar is in excellent shape overall considering its vintage, with just a few nicks and scratches here and there.  The body had a crack below the bridge but has since been professionally repaired. The white saddle is cracked right next to where the A string sits but does not currently interfere with the string. The serial number looks like it was traced over with a pen, but upon close inspection, the number is not tampered with and is accurate. It looks as clean in person as it does in the photos.     

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent - Plays remarkably well and sounds incredible. Nice, easy and inviting feel and bold sound. Clean notes up and down the neck with great action. With one tiny exception, the 3rd fret high E string note is buzzy when played hard. Played normally and it is fine but strike the string hard and it buzzes against the fret. Any decent luthier can level that fret a smidge and it will be perfect.  Besides that, the overall playing condition is excellent and the guitar is a vintage delight to play.
