Case Details: Original hardshell case. The case shows moderate cosmetic wear, and the combination latch is missing, but is structurally secure.
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows light play wear, consistent with its age; the finish is glossy with minor scratches and scuffs throughout. There is a small finish chip near the output jack, as well as some scratches on the back of the body. There are several open screw holes on the back of the headstock from previous tuner installations.
Serial Number: 94021748
Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and optimal neck relief; the guitar is currently set up with 11-49 gauge strings, with a wound G. The wound G is necessary given the bridge's intonation line. The frets are wide and relatively low, with minimal wear.
