Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows expected cosmetic wear for its age; the finish is glossy with swirls, scratches, and patches of hazing. Other small blemishes are apparent as well, including numerous small dings and chips on the body. The back of the neck has a few minor blemishes, as well as minor hanger rash around the nut. There is a small chunk of rosewood fretboard missing behind the treble side of the nut, which is cosmetic only.
Serial Number: E007404
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with low action and optimal neck relief, and is currently set up with 10s. The frets are medium height with mild wear. The pot codes date to 1980, and the serial number dates to 1980/1981.
