The cold painted lips were retouched and there is a tiny typical minor rub to the nose and some flakes at the ear pierce holes.. The original body with its original deep brown finish does have some minor crazing and paint touch-ups to areas where chipping and crazing occurred but still in very good sturdy condition with fresh restringing.
