No need to worry about the first ding: this 17-year-old (s/n 743###) has been well played in its time. It plays and sounds fine but has some small visible dings and finish crazing. It has a professionally repaired seam split on the top below the bridge.

My luthier says frets 1-7 were replaced at one time and he reglued loose binding at the waist. It's all set up and adjusted and will come in an Asian trapezoidal hard-foam case.* I have this listed for a higher price on Reverb, but for Forum members, $1500 + actual shipping from 91214. I don't have an account with any shipper, so I pay the retail price for shipping. I find the post office is the most affordable. Any shipper will nowadays use dimensional--rather than actual--weight. This may run around $100 to the east side of the country. Local pickup is also possible and probably preferred.

*--I could also put this in a Guild hsc that needs re-lining if buyer prefers.

Email contact is best.

Just broke in, lol. You might give the relatively new "FedEx fragile ground" shipping a try. I have received 2 steel and a resonator, all shopped this way. No crush marks or marks of any kind on the boxes. Probably costs more but is worth the peace of mind.
