She was just born just recently in 2021, and is in unplayed condition with no play wear to report. However, it is a Gibson, so this came from Gibson with a finish flaw above the toggle switch. You will need reflective light to see this, but it is there. I’ve included a picture and circled the flaw.. Please disregard the reflections in this picture. Also included is the original Lifton Gibson custom shop hard shell case, the case candy, factory pre-pack checklist and certificate, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be completely STOKED!!
