Case Details: Original hardshell case
Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows normal wear for its age; the finish is glossy with numerous small blemishes throughout. There are finish dings at the tips of each fin as well as the headstock, as well as a couple small dings on the back of the neck. There is a previously repaired headstock break which has been oversprayed, as well as a possible heel repair which has been oversprayed as well. There is some finish cracking at these spots, which is purely cosmetic.
Serial Number: 406198
Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and optimal neck relief; the guitar is currently set up with 10s. The frets are wide and low, but show little wear. The serial number, body style, and appointments date this guitar to 1974.
