I say:

A well used, but structurally and electronically original example that’s now in its 25th year and has become “Vintage” this year (2017).

Starting at the top then, The headstock is in great condition  – no chips  – the Kluson Deluxe tuners sill hold their tuning really well.  The back of the neck shows some small pressure marks from being leant against an amp or something.  To be honest you can hardly feel them and they certainly do not impede play.  The rosewood fingerboard is in great condition too, with very little marking, only a little wear in an “open D” chord position.  The original frets show a little wear in the open positions, but nothing that needs re-crowning or replacing.

The back of the body has no significant chips, but does have significant buckle rash, not through the lacquer though.  There are a few minor chips around the edges of the guitar and the lacquer on the rear of the upper horn has worn away.  There are some scratches on the control cavity covers

The top of the guitar is in good condition, but does show a few indentations – but nothing to indicate careless or abusive use – just use. Electronics are all crackle free and fully functional.

The case is much the same as the guitar – fully functional, but it has been well used,  It has one missing clasp, and the coded catch is a little wobbly, but it still works.
