BUT, I give up on reading the back of the neck; I'm perplexed. I'm pretty darn good at reading a guitar neck and fingerboard, but the marks on the back of this neck have me stumped. They are barely deeper than the paint if at all, so the dog didn't play E-barre chords with his teeth at F, G, A, C, D and octave E; But the marks sure do roughly correspond with a capo in those positions (the pics here aren't perfectly matched in size and position but are very close). And look at the pattern of complete fretboard knowledge on the fretboard; THAT ain't repeated capo'ed finger patterns. It's almost as though a previous owner played with a rough ring on their thumb! I give up; Anyone got any ideas, ....I'd sure like to be able to know and file this wear pattern away in my head !
I enjoy reading a fretboard. This one is a very nice fretboard with very little wear on the fingerboard and frets. Finger oil patterns on the fretboard are nice and even and reveal good and full finger patterns knowledge by not very many different people having played this guitar (otherwise the pattern would be scattered and sporadic in wear depth and patterns). I am making a SWAG that either the original owner already played guitar quite well when he/she got this one, or didn't play it hardly at all and it was acquired by a Player that played well with a precise and light touch that left the light finger pattern marks but didn't wear the frets very much at all.
Front strap button is missing. I'll be delighted to replace it should a Buyer desire.
Someone is gonna be quite stoked having and playing this wonderful guitar.
