  • G&G Hardshell Tweed Case

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - Some minor nicks and dings here and there but all parts are fully intact and in great shape. Chrome has a nice shining luster to it, the wood looks great as well. There is one ding on the fretboard and a few small ones on the headstock and sides of the guitar. The frets have light wear. The overall condition is very good.

WORKING CONDITION: Good - This guitar has a great acoustic tone and projects with resonance. The action is medium and comfortable but could use a little adjustment at the bridge to "round off" the strings to match the curve of the neck. Pickups are both working great and sound fantastic. The volume control is silent through most of its taper range, then a quick rise in the last part of the knob's range. The tone control does not work at all, has no effect on the sound. Overall working condition is good but a little adjustment here and there by a professional is recommended to make it all it can be.
