Three back cracks. Finish bubbles on surface of pickguard may indicate old overspray on top or attempt to seal significant pickwear. Back of neck finish is worn off, dented, and gouged. Very little wear to original frets. Original bridge has been sanded thin. Cut through saddle has been modified to drop in. Reasonable neck angle. Would benefit from new bridge and setup for proper playability. Tuners have been replaced with Kluson style with threaded grommet attachment system. Hard case included. Condition: Fair.
