Description:   overall good condition. minor ding here and there. original case (needed due to its weight, when i first aquired it from my uncle the case was missing and i went through 2 cases eventually busting at the seams before the original case surfaced and returned to its rightful guitar) i've kept the hardware polished but the bridge has some minor pits due to years of storage before i aquired it. awsome sound. my prize possetion. my uncle got it from a guy years and years ago while his band was playing at a bar in florida. some guy came in needing money and wanting to sell it. my dad played it and loved it. he tried to talk my uncle out of it for years. finally my uncle gave in. how i came to own it is my dad was teaching me how to play. ( he didnt know i had learned more than he knew). well my mom really liked the song tears in heaven. and my dad told me if i could learn it in 3 days start to finish he'd give me the bean. well long story short i came in the room 3 hours later and played the entire song. i was 16 at the time. im 27 now and he still says i gave him the gamblers bluff. be that as it may i now own a guitar with alot of memories and history. let alone a sound i have yet to hear matched. sorry dad. but rest assured this ones not leaving the family. my 2 year old son has 6 guitars and you could hold out a guitar in one hand and a powerwheel and 1000 hotwheels in the other and he'll pick the guitar and start playing and singing for you. the bean will be in good hands for generations to come.
