In excellent condition all-round, having been played but very well looked after. There are some small surface scratches on the body and one or two of the tiniest little dings (if you're being really fussy) on the body and neck. The worst surface scratches are photographed here under light. The scratchplate has also done its job (see photo).
There's also a slight and very small imperfection in the soundhole surround which has been there from new, we can't really explain it but hey ho! (pictured)
And we wouldn't usually go as far as mentioning, but there is some very slight fretwear in the expected areas around the first three frets from playing open chords. It's not severe but can be seen under close inspection, and this is an expensive guitar so we think it's well worth knowing!
