Cosmetics: Good Condition. Keep in mind that this is a 45+ year old guitar that has been played. There are light strumming scratches on the Top as well as scratches on the back mainly from being held next to the players body. There are chips in the finish down to bare wood at the edge of the lower bout on the back. Neck, Fingerboard and Headstock in great shape. All gold hardware has faded. Original Hard Shell Case has some scuffs and scratches. All latches work. Dripping with "Mojo". It is used. Not perfect. Overall, a really nice guitar. Look at the pictures closely. They will tell the story.
