PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - Considering that this is a vintage item, there are some signs of wear. There are some scratches and dings around the guitar. Some of the metal parts are slightly oxidized. Otherwise, everything is still intact and looking nice. The overall physical condition is very good. 

WORKING CONDITION: Fair - The sound coming from this guitar is very faint and has a good amount of buzz as well. There's isn't much low end coming from the guitar. However, it's still showing signs of life. Looks to be original parts so a little overhaul should get this thing singing! Overall, the working condition is fair.
