Cosmetic Condition: This guitar has numerous chips, dents, dings, and light finish checking throughout the headstock, neck, and body. There is a spot of finish bubbling on the back of the headstock about 1.5" in length. On the top, 2 screw holes are visible on either side of the bridge for the bridge cover that is not included. The control plate has a large crack at the bottom that has been repaired. There is a large area on the back of the upper bout where the finish has worn down to the wood. There is also some significant buckle rash on the back. The hole for the original output jack is visible underneath the washer for the barrel jack.

Tech Notes: Plays well with low action and minimal neck relief. Frets are low with only minor signs of play wear and plenty of life left in them. The bridge is bottomed out on the treble side, so action adjustability is limited. Serial number and pot codes indicate this guitar was made in 1972.

- All orders with 2-day delivery service will ship within one business day. Saturday Delivery is not applicable, but is available for an additional service charge in most areas. Free 2-day delivery service is not available on orders with offers.

- All packages are fully insured at no additional charge. Your instrument will be shipped using the highest level of industry-standard packing materials, in every attempt to make sure it arrives in ready-to-play condition.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
- Our international shipping rates should reflect on the item listing. Feel free to message us directly for shipping quotes on specific items or with any questions.

- All shipping rates are for actual transportation charges and do not include VAT, import taxes, or brokerage fees, which vary from country to country.

- If you order contains Rosewood, or any other CITES restricted woods, your shipment might be delayed due to Customs processing standards that CME is subject to as the shipper. All orders requiring CITES documentation must ship to the buyer's residential address. If your country requires CITES import permits, please work with your local Customs agency to obtain these permits prior to shipment.

- Most of our preset shipping rates are for USPS International Service. USPS is typically less expensive than UPS, but their international tracking system is not as accurate. We ship guitars via UPS Worldwide Expedited unless you request a different service. Arrival times may vary from country to country. Some large items such as bass guitars, drum kits, amplifiers, and speaker cabinets may not be eligible for shipping via USPS due to size limitations. Some brands cannot be shipped internationally due to manufacturer restrictions. Feel free to message us with any questions.

- We are unable to ship to Russia due to the current trade sanctions.
