Erm, just got the box in today, as soon as I got it I opened it up, and was like holy crap. I mean, according to the serial number, it was made in like '94 or something, but this thing is pretty...and no scratches. The guy on ebay said they only played for a year and its been in its case for 12 years - I guess it shows, considering the bits of rust on the strings and some on the upper frets. After that, I realized...I was supposed to leave it in to adjust to the humidity, so I felt pretty stupid...gotta love how my house is so dry though. So when I do open it back up again, throwing some lemon oil on there and some strings...probably elixirs. I'll take pics later, but for the moment, does anyone know how to get rid of the stuff thats gotten on the frets? I guess its kinda like the junk that gets on pennies - its blueish. That and no scratches or anything - might as well be mint! Not bad for 190 on ebay shipped...impulse buying sucks.
