This guitar is in good working condition, there are some surface scratches here and there, some minor chips on the lower edge of the body and there's a paint chip on the lower cutaway horn, the majority of the lacquer has faded, the fade however is even across the surfaces. There are some minor signs of wear on the fretboard, this however is quite minor and the frets have plenty of life left in them. The action at the 12th fret is 1.5mm and the guitar plays great!
