The guitar had a small fretboard lift professionally repaired (see pics) The repair is structurally solid and is smooth to the touch and does not and will not affect the guitars sound, playability or structural integrity in any way, only its price. Otherwise, it has no issues and it has little to no play wear. It looks, plays and sounds great! The actual item for sale is shown in the photographs.
