Original owner, both purchased new in 2010. Has never been gigged out. Used for practice & home studio & has only left to home once. Finish on this instrument is in overall great condition. No dings or buckle/button rashes. Very, very light minuet scratches & swirl marks from normal use that aren't noticeable unless you were right up on it. The only cosmetic issue & bummer would be the rubbed/faded finish of the hardware (factory defect). That unfortunately seems common amongst other guitars with the same color hardware. This does not affect the playability or sound of the instrument or functioning of the hardware what so ever & can be easily remedied should the new own decide.
