Overall this guitar is in Excellent condition. The pink has started to fade in various spots.

One ding near the pickup selector, a little bit of checking, light general wear. Kahler trem is missing it’s bar.

Not a lot of fret wear. Fast neck.

Sounds killer with the Dirty Fingers humbucker and single coils.
