This guitar is in very good condition for its nearly 40 years of existence. As can be seen from the pictures, fret wear is near zero, and the body, neck and chrome shine. There is a blemish on the back edge (see pics) and bottom edge of neck, which don't take away from the overall beauty of the instrument.

It plays superbly, and this is the go-to guitar for anyone who wants to look and sound like Mark Knopfler. (See magazine pic)
