Cosmetic Condition: Whoa, this thing is looking good! There is some serious age flowing through this Firebird with some checking throughout the body with some dings and scratching throughout the top. The sides have some chips and dings and the back is loaded up with buckle rash across it. The neck feels great for the age with some minor dings and the headstock has some finish wear, edge wear and checking going on. This 'Bird is ready to soar!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: Two inlays have been replaced. The guard, screws, and switch have been replaced. There are two small, doweled holes under the guard and there is an extra strap button.
