DESCRIPTION AND CONDITION: I am selling this guitar for the second owner. The first owner, an amateur musician, didn't play it much, and never played any gigs. He sold it to Albert Molenaro's "Guitars R Us" on Sunset Blvd. in LA., where the current owner purchased it in 1999. The current owner, though a working musician, never took it to a gig, using it only for occasional session work. It is all original, with no modifications. There is no checking in the finish, and and no belt buckle wear. The neck is straight, action and intonation are great and there is very little fret wear. It is a fantastic instrument with very little wear of any kind - remarkable for its age. There are just two small chips in the finish on the front and a little chip on the headstock near the truss rod cover, as can be seen in the pictures. The case is from 1999 when the guitar was last purchased. It remains in excellent condition as well. Measurements
