Cosmetic Condition:  Cool vintage vibe - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking & finish wear.  Overall the guitar has a really nice, played look to it with a gorgeous patina.  No cracks or breaks!

Neck:  Slender profile mahogany neck with nicely aged cream binding & tortoise side dots.  Beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl double parallelogram inlays.  Frets are in great shape with hardly any wear.  Nickel Kluson, waffle-back tuners in perfect working condition.  1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.

Body:  Square shoulder dreadnought body with multi-bound top & back.  Solid spruce top with rosewood bridge & mother of pearl dove inlays.  Nickel ABR-1 bridge with adjustable nylon saddles.  Tortoise-style pickguard with Dove & floral motif; multi-ring rosette.  Highly-figured flame maple back & sides.  The cherry finish on the back & sides is very strong & the flame figuring is quite stunning!

Playability / Sound:  Neck plays well & is very comfortable.  The action up at the 12th fret is a little higher than what most players typically like - it's about 3/16".  The guitar produces a warm, rich tone with a nice, sweet resonance.

Case:  Unoriginal hardshell case included.
