Pre-owned in fair condition, this guitar has been very well used and shows lots of marks, scratches, fret wear. Please read the full description for a top to bottom description.

Made in Japan

From the top down:-

The head has just a few tiny marks, logos not faded, tuners working well, and truss rod operating in both directions.

The nut is ok.

The fingerboard shows lots of wear and the frets are equally worn. Fair to say, the frets are in the last throws of life and although there are no choking notes, there is some mild buzz especially from the bottom E, A and D strings beyond the 12th fret. Up to the 12th fret, there is hardly any buzz at all.

The back of the neck has just a few very light marks which do not affect play.

The body has a crack to the wood at the neck pocket and with the pick guard removed, the small bit of wood between the neck pocket and the pickup routing has been re-glued (see pictures for the neck pocket crack). The rest of the body has a few small dings and marks but overall, appears well looked after. The opposing neck pocket side has a tiny lacquer crack (not the wood).

The bridge is original, however we've replaced the saddles because the original saddles were corroded and not adjustable. 

The chrome finish to the Volume and Tone control knobs is very dull. In addition, the control knobs are seized onto the pot shafts. One grub screw will not release, the other grub screw has released and is not present but the control knob has seized to the shaft of the pot.

Happy to say, the electrics are completely original and work perfectly.

The only modification from original are the strap buttons which have been swapped out for locking buttons, which are supplied with the strap fixings. 

Apologies for the extensive write up, but we do like our customers to be fully informed, which is why we've tried to be as honest and in depth as possible with the description. Please check out the photos which should be viewed as part of the description.   If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Priced according to condition.

In summary, the guitar plays great and sounds superb, but in the not too distant future, it will need attention to the frets.

The guitar is supplied with a near mint condition Hiscox LiteFlite hard case.
