Cosmetic Condition: There is some finish swirling and a couple light dings across the top but it's in great shape all around. The sides have only minimal wear and there is some scratching and buckle rash on the back. The neck is mostly smooth with a scratch behind the first two frets and the headstock has some minor scratching. Make this Super Axe your weapon of choice!

Playability: The guitar plays well with low action. The frets have some play wear.

Modifications/Repairs: The pickup selector switch has been replaced. A strap button has been added to the back of the neck heel. There are four screws added near the rear strap button where a trapeze tailpiece was installed. The trapeze tailpiece has since been removed. There were other tuning keys installed at one time, but the correct keys are now back in place.
