Only standard genuine wear as shown in the pictures of the top

Great tone and projection. Tone plus.

NOTES: This is a high nut, high action slide guitar.
It was designed and built to play
as a slide Hawaiian or bottleneck guitar

The guitar is not labelled but I am very familiar with this maker and this model and have had this particular previously. The last one listed on this site back in 2007.
The bridge has just been reglued and you may notice in one of the close up photos of the bridge that one of the black dots is just a little high. That will be trimmed down this week. The purpose of the black dot sis to cover the original bridge bolts that secure the bridge to the top of the guitar.
