The guitar is fully playble with very good string action (2mm E1 on 12th fret)
There are no cracks or other damages on this rare guitar.
The nck seems to have been reglued once. The job was well done, the connection is bomb-proof and has NO affect on playability or tone of this fine guitar.

The tuners and the bridge are not original and were renewed earlier
The varnish is in age related good condition ad is showing normal harmless signs of the time (f.e. fine laquer cracks - most on the top - vintage factor). Except the tuners and the bridge, the guitar is in original condition

The fingerboard is showing as good as no signs of playing. The frets were rounded and polished. The fingerboard was cleaned and oiled
