Due to its condition, this item is presented as is. Please read further for a full disclosure of the product's condition.
Cosmetic Condition: Lots of finish cracking on back and one good one on the top. Chrome parts look great except for neck plate which is rusted pretty severely, preventing screws from turning. White specks on fretboard and on bass side horn. Finish spots on headstock and similar spots on back of neck. Large finish cracks on sides next to neck joint. Binding separating from headstock close to treble-side nut.
Playing Condition and Functionality: Neck is OK. Missing whammy. Spacing on nut is off causing movement and buzz. Neck binding is separating causing some playing discomfort. Electronics are only semi-functional and require attention, though the pickguard screws have seized up and would need to be drilled through to be pulled out. This guitar is a project piece to be sure, but it is also a quintessential Japanese Vintage guitar.Specs:
