The guitar is in great condition and you would have to look very hard to find a ding or scratch it also sounds amazing now that it has been fitted with a Fishman Pre-Amp. By the way the marks next to the Pre- Amp are finger marks and have since been wiped off. I didn’t notice them till it was posted and on online. It really is a great guitar sounding guitar but unfortunately it doesn't get used. It’s been very well looked after and comes with carrying case for extra protection.
