There is an area alongside the lower edge (near the output jack) where the finish got chipped (see pics) long ago, but the finish still holds & the wood beneath it seems to be fine. A very small clear finish chip directly above the nut (see pics). Spot areas of a cosmetic and transparent like smokey "haze," blushing, (see pics) on the clear finish @ front & backside of the body, @ back of the neck, & @ the peghead. Stewart-McDonald sells a spray on "Blush Eraser", if someone wanted to try it........Not in mint condition, but still very nice !!
