She is just about to celebrate her 27th birthday and has been totally babied. You will have to search with reflective light to find a few light scratches, and light surface impressions. It truly is in remarkable condition for her age. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs… the frets are excellent, with their entire life ahead of them… and the sound is as sweet as it gets! Also included is a very heavy duty Warwick road case (shown in the pics), however, if you prefer, we can swap out the case for a newer Fender hard case… since the Warwick case is so heavy. Just let me know your preference. Whoever brings this baby home is going to be completely STOKED!!
