The back of the body has some additional finish scratches and light buckle rash, and there is a small patch of case rash on the side of the treble shoulder. There is a small ding on the back of the neck just behind the nut which does not affect playability, and the sides of the headstock have some rash from a string winder.

Tech Notes: The guitar sets up well with light gauge acoustic strings and low action; the neck shows light relief but the truss rod remains adjustable. The frets are wide and show light play wear, with plenty of life remaining. The serial number and squared body shoulders date the guitar to 1968.
