The fretboard is in great condtion, but the fret inlays them selves are a little weird. When you are playing the guitar, you can see through the fret inlay and it looks as if there are green holes in the fret board. But hey, its still the coolist 7-string guitar i can afford. Im not sure if it comes with a case, I hope it does, but im willing to spend a few more bucks, $900 for this guitar is a crazy price. There are some scratches and chips on the body and a farily large chip at the top of the body inbetween the front and back side, its about an 1 inch long and it is chipped down to the wood, but i dont really mind, i may even be able to bargain my way out of a hundred bucks or so. Im going back there today to chech it out, make sure the intination, harmonics, bridge, neck, joints, and everything is peachy, wouldn't want to buy a sour universe!
