The guitar is in nearly mint condition despite being twelve years old. There are only some very light scratches on the pick guard and back. The only scratches to the finish are on the back and they are so light they could probably be buffed out.
The guitar is 100% original with noiseless single coil pickups and the S-1 switching system for multiple pickup configurations. The body is made of Ash instead of the alder that is usually used by Fender currently. The finish is tobacco sunburst and the fretboard is a nice dark rosewood. Frets are nearly 100% and the action is nice and low which pairs fantastically with the satin finish on the neck. Tremolo bar is included and locking tuners aid in maintaining tuning.
