This Musicmaster in Desert Sand is in 100% original condition. It has all the character you want to see in a vintage guitar, but it isn't beat up like many out there. I'm leaving it just as it is, with the years of student-hand dirt on the neck, etc.
The guitar came in with no case, so I reached back in my stash and found the case you see pictured. I'm not sure what the case is really for, but it is definitely of the same era. It has some nails added here and there to keep the edges connected to the top and bottom, but it is functional and looks good with the guitar, plus it'll keep the guitar safer in shipping. I will wrap the guitar to keep it from moving around in the case in transit.
