JVG CONDITION RATING 8.8 / 10 very good vintage patina with a few minor nicks, one top impact fracture has been professionally mended looks fine see pics it old and had not mover again in 30 years. Also two hard to see fine line impact top finish 3-to 4" long hairline cracks ...these I french polished into the opening and buffed off leaving only fine line fill to preserve integrity of the original finish also 2 very small nicks on top were filled with aged clear lacquer droplet too and buffed off...top is in excellent vintage condition otherwise.
Back & sides & neck is very clean and above average condition for a 42+ year old vintage D-28....OVERALL this is a very clean original vintage Beauty!
