The biggest thing to note regarding the cosmetic wear is the doll. at some point this guitar has spent some time on a non-nitro finish nice wall hanger. If you pla t see the pictures. There is a certain grace to break the lacquer finish and pictures make it look worse than it is. The only other wear rating is some minor hazing nitro finish where a body of players and the arm to play guitar. Its very minor. The hardware all seems pretty clean. His guitar mint for 13 years. The number stamp United States and serial number on the back of the doll were very difficult to photograph, but I managed to get a pic.

The case is in very good condition with a few small flaws Tolex. All locks and hinges are present and work as they should, but a lock has a tweak in the folded flange.
