PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - The body was re-finished in Candy Apple Red long ago and has since gone through a few decades of a natural relic process. The paint is heavily chipped and worn on the back and a few edges but is still pretty clean on the front. There are some nicks and dings and some marking on the fretboard as well as some oxidation on the bridge. All controls, all pickups, and the guitar as a whole look great and are in very good condition overall considering age. The guitar is a real gem and has loads of vibe and mojo resonating from it even when parked in an open case.  

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent - This guitar is everything you would hope a vintage strat to be. It feels just right in your hands, the notes are clean and easy up and down the neck and each pickup provides distinct woody character at every position. This guitar is strat heaven! The pickups, 5-Way selector switch, and control knobs are in perfect working order. It tunes up easy and stays there. Overall working and playing condition is excellent!
