She is just about to celebrate her 38th birthday, and has been very well cared for. The are some buckle scratches on the back, and some pick-scratches on the top and pick-guard… but truly, for a 38 year old guitar, this is super clean. The neck is straight with no cracks or repairs… The frets are excellent with plenty of life ahead… And the sound is just as sweet as it gets!! Also included is the original Fender tweed rectangular hard shell case, which does show some wear, but is structurally sound, and includes a piece of case candy, as well as the gold-plated tremolo bar, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is going to be STOKED!!
