The back has some surface scratches and checking lines in the lacquer but no serious buckle rash or other damage. The neck has a small chip at the heel as well some light checking lines but overall it is glossy and feels great to play. The headstock looks very clean for its age with only very minor wear and no signs of structural damage. This Melody Maker has held up beautifully over the years!

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