This is a used guitar, only one owner, and it is fully functional. The guitar is in very good shape, with very little play wear. The case is an accurate Fender replacement tweed case, as shown in the pictures. The decal is on top of the lacquer, as they used to in the original 50's models. It is bubbling up in a couple spots, as shown in the close up picture, but it is very common and nothing to worry about. It is still securely fastened. There is a decal from the original store that it was purchased from on the back of the headstock.
This guitar is nice and true to original 52 spec. Even all the screws are flathead, just like they were back in the 50's. Chrome ashtray bridge cover included. There is some marking in the finish from the ashtray being on the guitar and some minor surface scratching on the back of the body, but the string ferrules. These are shown, as best as can be photographed, in the last two pictures.
