Please note that this guitar is second-hand, however it has been well looked after has has barely any signs of play wear and is overall in very good condition.
The guitar is completely stock, however the previous owner has polished the satin body and headstock, but has done a very good job. We personally think it looks a lot better as it has helped to make the finish pop through giving it that glossy, shiny, aesthetic.
