PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - This guitar is in pretty amazing shape for its age. All parts are fully intact, there is some light oxidation on some of the metal and some checking in the finish. Also, on the back there is some buckle rash and the headstock has a few dings around the edges. Structurally nothing was broken and no anomalies under a blacklight. Overall condition is very good.

WORKING CONDITION: Very Good - Has an excellent feel to it, great playability! Both pickups are working thought the neck has a fairly low output. The bridge pickup works perfectly and sounds great. Toggle switch and control knobs all work. The overall working condition is very good.
