In good preowned condition. It's truly in amazing condition. The back is a Bakelite cover, easily removed if you want an open back model. The old gent I got it from had the bridge replaced by a luthier and it's much better then the old plastic one. It could probably use some new strings but other then that I think it's a good player and a wonderful collectible. Please ask questions before buying. We have more guitar items listed if you check our other items. Please ask any questions before you buy. Karen and I are doing our best to keep a great rep here on ebay. We want to be around a long time. We'll do our best to take good care from you from packing well to backing up what we sell as being exactly as described. We say we don't take returns because the items we sell are used. We will make exception to that if and ONLY if an item is not as described. Thanks for taking a look.
