Condition: Excellent Condition, from a distance looks mint, however you can find a handful of light scratches and dings when inspecting closer around the body. These come from age and use and is not noticeable unless you look for them. A few scratches and swirlies on the back but no real buckle rash and not feel-able to the touch. The neck and headstock are preserved well with light signs of wear and frets have medium to lots of life left.

All original pickups and pots that date to 1977 except for the the original bridge tone pot was replaced with a push pull pot, but the restored to back to an alpha pot. Electronics work very well but without the original solder joints.
