Cosmetic Condition: The finish on this Black Beauty is all original and in great shape for its age. There are some signs of play wear on the front and a handful of small dings and divots in the finish but no major wear. The sides have some discoloration in the binding along the lower bout as well as some light finish wear and a few lacquer cracks in the binding. The back has some light surface scratches from buckle rash but only a few small spots of finish wear. The neck has only some light thumbnail dings but is smooth and glossy overall with no chips or major wear. The headstock has some checking on the front and some very light wear around the back edge but looks incredible given its age. This truly is a gorgeous Black Beauty!
