I say:

A remarkably clean example of this guitar – in very good condition.  Maple fingerboard and frets are nearly unmarked, just some very minor fret wear in the cowboy chord positions.  The Metallic Red bodywork is in very good condition, just a couple of minor chips on the back of the upper horn, and one on the lower bass bout. some almost insignificant bucklerash on the rear of the body (it won’t even photograph!).  Unfortunately the original Fender case has gone missing, but it will be packed in a hard case (actually a Peavey ASB case),  trem arm is in the case pocket.
