No scratchy pots broken switches or dodgy sockets. Plays great sounds awesome.


The usual nicks dents chips and scratches you would expect from a 42 year old Destroyer.

Previous owner has added a contour to the upper edge of the guitar and affixed a vinyl/rubber padding for playing comfort reasons I would suspect.


International Buyers take note: It is very very expensive to ship from Australia. Ask for a quote but don’t be surprised if its around $400 AUD. May be more, may be less depending on where you are shipping it to. If shipped internationally the guitar will be well packed and bubble wrapped in a sturdy cardboard box for travel.
