Some traces of wear, small dents which give it a “relic” look, yellowed paint in certain places, old traces of stickers on the pickguard, but in good condition considering its age.
The electronics are original and functional, the frets are in very good condition.
The tremolo rod has been replaced with a standard “shortened” Fender rod and is functional.
