Rating Definition:

Exceptionally fine as factory upgraded to current configuration with 97% of the bright factory blue finish remaining, some scattered scratches visible on the top barrel flat, and a few small nicks and dings. The wood is also very fine with attractive grain and some small visible dings. Mechanically excellent. Case is fine with some exterior storage marks.
