It's been set up in our workshop with a low action and plays beautifully. The frets are in great condition with very little wear and have been dressed in our workshop. There are only minor and superficial signs of wear, with light scuffs around the body and headstock edges and a couple of very small dings on the back of the neck. Overall superb condition. The case has some damage to one corner of the lid but we will attempt to fix this before any sale.
Mahogany body, Koa facings ( body & headstock) neck-through-body design with five-piece maple/purple heart neck, unbound rosewood fretboard, oval inlays, and twin heel-adjust truss rods.
