PHYSICAL CONDITION: Good - The controls have been moved to the other side of the body, for a lefty guitarist, but the guitar can easily be strung and played by a right-handed player. Gaff tape has been used to cover the original location of the electronics. The block of internal electronics are currently not strapped down to anything, so they knock around in the body when the guitar is moved. All parts, tuners, bridge, and controls, including the OP-24 pre-amp are in great shape and good condition overall.

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent - Simply gorgeous sounding! Plays like a dream! Tuners are accurate and in perfect shape. Pickup sounds fantastic and is also working perfectly. Overall working condition is excellent!
