Hey Gang, I've only said "mint" condition maybe a dozen times out of the hundreds guitars that I have owned. Maybe thousands. This is about as close as you're going to get if you want mint. So to be safe and you know who you are, I'll say near mint. The case excellent. All the tags excellent. She sounds as sweet as tupelo honey. She play effortlessly. Most definitely for the collector. The faded ice tea is exactly that! Not another one like it. You will not be dissatisfied.
