It plays and sounds exactly like a dream--the neck is one piece mahogany and is the fatter 59 neck with 1 11/16ths nut--the case is in great shape inside with a few worn spots outside. The guitar itself has been played--there are pick marks above and below the strings and on the guard--there are some mild wormings on the back but not through to the wood--some of the hardware has dimmed over the 40 years-there are a couple minor finish cracks that are very hard to see but essentially no checking--the nitro finish is the rare ferrari red and is in beautiful shape--hard to photograph without reflections--as mentioned the original hang tags--registration and checklist and keys to the case are included--the Brazilian Rosewood board is in wonderful shape and is one of the darkest i've seen--the frets are in good shape with perhaps 70% life left and plenty of meat for recrowning if desired--the guitar plays up and down the neck without buzzing and with no dead spots. This is a beautiful example of the first year of issue for the es-335 dot series that will make any professional musician very happy. Under the subtitle above "condition" there is a remnant from an earlier guitar that i missed when using that as a template--sorry for any confusion but i assume by the photographs it's clear that was a mistake. Also it should be noted that this is a second from the factory as seen in the back of the headstock scan--the only possible explanation for this is the very small finish cracks mentioned in the description which are likely native to the guitar and caused it to be a "second" -- the top is of course laminate as are all 335s so no crack goes into the wood and the two mentioned were nearly impossible to photograph being so small.
