Cosmetic Condition: The top has some checking, dings and some holes from the bridge being pinned to the top. The sides have some dings and binding wear and the back has some light scratching, some cracking in the leather back pad and a bit of tarnish on the back pad buttons. The neck is mostly smooth with some light dings and the headstock has some binding cracking and some dings. This Country Gentleman sounds and plays great!

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

Modifications/Repairs: There has been a refret and the binding has been sanded down slightly from the planing process. The binding has been removed from the f-holes and the outer edges have been sanded. The mute, nut, bridge, and kill switch tip have been replaced.
