Cosmetic Condition:  Cool vintage vibe with that well-played look & a gorgeous patina.  There are various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking & some finish wear.  Overall the guitar has a great look to it & has been professionally set up by us with a fresh pack of strings.  The neck is straight & plays great.  The guitar delivers a warm, rich tone & is tons of fun to play.

Neck:  Semi-chunky mahogany neck with cream side-dots.  Beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays.  Frets show some light wear, but have plenty of life in them.  Nickel Grover tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 11/16" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.  Neck is straight & plays well.

Body:  Dreadnought body with solid spruce top with 5-ply binding.  Rosewood bridge with black end pins.  Unoriginal tortoise pickguard.  Solid mahogany sides & back with black binding.

Case:  Original hardshell case included.
