WORKING CONDITION: Excellent - Plays great. This comes directly out of the arsenal of a seasoned professional session player so the action and set-up are dialed in! Currently outfitted with 13 gauge flat-wound strings.  All of the controls and electronics are working properly. She is a looker and a player!  In all, this guitar is in excellent condition. 

 Very Good - Normal signs of wear throughout the body and neck with nothing outstanding. The finish is heavily checked which gives it the perfect patina.  The 3-way switch tip being original and cracked was re-glued back together, and the binding around the body is slightly aged yellow over time. Otherwise, everything is still well-kept, clean, and ready for action. Overall, the physical condition is very good.
