The body looks very very tidy from a few feet away but does have some extremely minor scratches here and there. Nothing major.
In fact to be honest I couldn’t really spot any but in my experience I would rather say there are some so you expect some that I haven’t spotted rather than you claim I never mentioned them. It’s a used guitar after all and a very very tidy guitar at that.
On the rear there is “bear claw” grain in the wood which looks like scratches to those that have never seen “bear claw” grain. It’s common, more so on spruce topped acoustic guitars, but perfectly natural and adds to the uniqueness and charm ;o)
Neck – no breaks or repairs.
The frets are in excellent condition with less than average wear, very clean. Doesn’t look fret dressed.
As this is one of the older, pre CITES embargo guitars it features a Rosewood fingerboard in excellent condition.
The rear of the neck is very clean too with no dents.
Electrics are in good order. As part of the inspection and set up process here at Guitar Mania the electrics have been cleaned and serviced and working to spec. On any guitar one must expect a bit of switch and / or pot noise / scratchiness at some point but after we set it up and tested it everything seem to be in top working order.
All switches and pickups look original.
Hardware – some signs of pitting and ageing but not drastic. Might benefit from a complete strip down if you wanted to go to town on it but we just went for a quick spruce up and We think it looks pretty clean.
Playability: we take pride in our instruments here, we love playing them, and love setting them up so they play to the best of their ability. This particular guitar has been set up with a slightly lower than factory set action, and had all the usual tests, set ups and inspections: action, truss rod, intonation, electrics etc. Set ups can be a personal thing but we like to set them up as WE like them, and 99% of the time it’s how you love them too!
