Overall, in very good condition and playability and tone/volume will impress. The only thing to note is some case material impression or marking has given some textural imprint to the lacquer on the side segments of the guitar from many years of safe storage. It may be possible to rub polish this out but not necessary.
This is a one owner guitar purchased in Bundaberg in 1982
I have included the following photo’s are to show the sides of the guitar that have case material impression in the lacquer.
I haven’t attempted to improve or polish the areas out but it is possible to consider a few light cut and polish, buffing sessions could remove or restore this to original.
Very difficult to photograph this texture, so please bear in mind I have used the reflection of an overhead fluorescent light.
Please take that into consideration that it really is much less than it appears in these photos.
