  • Condition: This guitar is in overall good condition. First off, it has a headstock repair. It came to us at our store this way, so the full extent of the repair isn’t known. It appears to me that there was a split from the tip of the headstock down through the tuning machine holes on the treble side. Ending about halfway between the 1st and 2nd string tuners. This also resulted in cracks throughout the clear coat in the surrounding area (see pics). There’s also a clear coat crack where the neck meets the headstock, however this appears to be only in the clear coat. Everything is nice and stable at the moment, and the repair, while visible, was done well. On to cosmetic condition: On the top, there’s not a whole lot of notable wear. Some pick scratches on the pickups and their plastic rings, a few pick scratches and a scuff above the 1st volume knob (not very visible unless in the right light, see pics), and a very small surface scratch south of the tone knob. The sides look really nice, but do have the occasional minor surface scratch and a couple small dings on the edge leading to the back. The back has a couple notable areas; a ding with topcoat crack near the cavity cover, some scratches toward the center, and light scratches throughout both plastic covers. The neck is nice and straight. A few light scratches are visible if the lighting permits. There’s also 4 small dings on the bass side of the neck at the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 9th frets (the one at the 9th is more of a wormy indentation which wraps towards the center of the neck. Pretty minor and easily overlooked). You can feel these with your thumb, but just barely. Aside from the aforementioned repair, the headstock looks pretty good, but does have light string scratches on the truss rod cover, and a couple other light marks across the top, but nothing too egregious. All in all, if there wasn’t a repair, this guitar would be in very good condition. With the repair taken into account; good condition. All electronics have been tested and are in working
    condition. Everything pictured is ready to be professionally packed and
  • Comments: This is an awesome guitar! It has a small amount of wear on it, but overall still looks just amazing! It plays great (set up in our shop in Denver, Colorado) and the Duncan Blackouts sound killer. The repair is causing no playability issues, and like many times with headstock repairs, the final product is often stronger than before.
