Cosmetic Condition: The top is in excellent shape, with only minor signs of play wear. The back has a few noticeable scratches along the lower bout, but otherwise has held up well over the years. The sides and edges show a large patch of finish chipping along the treble side horn, where the missing gator wrap has been colored black. There is a smaller patch of finish chipping found at the treble side shoulder, as well as a handful of other chips and scratches found elsewhere. The neck is nice and smooth, with exception to one minor scratch behind the 7th fret. There is a good amount of finish wear along the edges of the fretboard. The headstock has a fair amount of edge wear, but otherwise is looking good. This Hawk is ready to fly!

Playability: The strings are set-up with medium/low action, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.
