I Say:

Super clean example of this guitar in quite a rare finish.  The only mark of any significance is the chip out of the faceplate on the headstock – you can see this clearly in the photos.

The body back and front only show very minor marks, the top does has a significant flame as can be seen in the last photo, unfortunately the flash photography for the other shots has bleached this out, making it look less striking.

The neck, rosewood fingerboard and frets are all unmarked.

The Alnico V pickups are full bodied and raunchy. All electronics are crackle free and fully working.

The Original Gibson Case is in excellent condition and has paperwork and the (unfitted) pick guard.
