2007 IIRC - Will check. 2 dings on lower horn, 1 goes through to the wood, no wood damage Updates 1. There is some round wound scuffing of the fretboard. Nothing I actually feel when I'm playing but it obviously had rounds on it at one point. 2. On closer exam, there is a ding on the FB, top edge between Eb and E. it is actually on the edge. I don't wrap my thumb on a Ray and never noticed it. 3. FB is likely Pau Ferro. The wood seems a little diner grained and maybe a little harder than RW. 4. This is a factory fretless, not a defret replacement clear PG, shows off the very nice slab 'O Ash. Have the original white guard here somewhere. Will include it IF I can find it...
