She just celebrated her 16th birthday and has been totally babied. This was owned by a collector, who just did not play the guitar much. There are a few tiny, light surface pin-head sized surface impressions, which are only visible with direct reflective light. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs… the frets are excellent with plenty of life ahead of them… and she sounds like a great R9 should! Also included is the original Lifton Gibson custom shop hard shell case, and even includes the case candy and certificate, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be completely STOKED!!
