The body sports a distinctive German carve, and the original Pearl White gloss finish exhibits some concentrated small dings on the bass side of the strum path that the body’s waist. Wear is more restrained on the back and body perimeter, with just a few small dings and minor marks, along with light finish checking at the edges of the neck pocket. The gloss is very smooth on the neck profile, with a number of shallow marks that don’t distract the palm while fretting.

The original hardshell case with faux alligator tolex and red plush interior is included.
