She was born in 2016 and has been played, but well cared for. There is a ding on the top (which you can see in the pics, as well as some surface scratches, as to be expected with any black gloss guitar. You will need direct reflective light to see the scratches. Other than that, the neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs… the frets are perfect, with their entire life ahead of them,  and it sounds like a great PRS should! Also included is the original PRS hard shell case, and although there is no case candy for this, it does include the tremolo bar, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be STOKED!!
