This is an old Epiphone that my dad purchased in the 70's. I think they cost around $300 back then. It's got some minor surface damage, but nothing that goes through the finish. It has some cracking in the bridge where it looks like the strings were tightened too much, but these haven't expanded at all in the 20 years that I've owned it and they don't effect the sound. Look up online reviews. People rave about this model. Comes with a hard case in acceptable condition.
