She just celebrated her 10th birthday and has been played, but not abused. There are a few minor nicks on the side, as well as some light pin-head sized surface impressions on the top & back, as well as some scratches. It sounds like alot of wear when reading this, but the guitar really does have a nice clean appearance despite these minor flaws. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs… the frets show some wear, but still have plenty of life ahead of them… and the sound is sweet! Also included is the original Heritage hard shell case, some case candy, additional ebony bridge & truss cover, as well as the case keys and adjustment tool, just as shown in the pics! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be STOKED!!
