Cosmetic Condition:  Very good condition for a 40-year old guitar.  There are various minor nicks & dings; surface scratches & some cool finish checking.  No cracks or repairs. An after-market, passive under-saddle pickup was added along with a strap button in the neck heel.  Overall the guitar is in great shape & offers a warm, robust tone!

Neck:  Nicely rounded mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard & pearloid dot inlays.  Frets show some light wear, but have plenty of life in them.  Grover USA tuners in perfect working condition.  1 7/8" nut width; 25" scale length.  Neck is very comfortable & plays great!

Body:  Dreadnought body with multi-bound top & back.  Solid spruce top with solid rosewood back & sides.  Ebony bridge with cream end pins.  Black pickguard & multi-ring rosette.

Pickup:  Unoriginal, passive under-saddle pickup added with end pin jack.

Case:  Unoriginal hardshell case included.
