Cosmetic Condition: The guitar shows light cosmetic wear overall. The finish has mild buckle rash on the back, along with other small blemishes.
Serial Number: 834700549
Tech Notes: The guitar plays well with mild neck relief and medium-low action, and is currently set up with 10s. The neck has some mildly uneven frets, which are too low to properly dress out, and so has been set up with action comparable to an acoustic guitar. The serial number dates to 1980.
