PHYSICAL CONDITION: Good - The guitar shows a moderate amount of wear. There are spots along the edges of the body and neck where the finish has worn through. The finish on the darker sections of the body seems to have heat damage and/or buildup from decades of use, as the finish looks a little hazy and has spots where the inside of the case has imprinted a texture into the finish. There is light oxidation on the pickups, bridge and output jack. The guitar is structurally solid and feels good in the hands. The neck is straight, and although a re-fret was performed nearly 20 years ago, the frets feel new and show very little wear.  Overall, it is in good physical condition.

WORKING CONDITION: Very Good - The guitar plays and sounds great. The only issue is with the volume control. It doesn't allow a gentle roll-off in volume. Instead of ramping down, there's a large sudden drop off from full volume down to about 25% volume and the rest of the sweep goes smoothly down to silent. Otherwise, the guitar is fun and feels great when playing. The sound is bright and very resonant. Overall, it is in very good working order.
