The guitar is in excellent working condition with no notable issues. There are visible signs of wear on the front and back of the guitar. The guitar is identified by an Aerosmith inventory tag on the headstock. It includes a hardshell case, one of Brad’s custom Aerosmith guitar pics and a certificate of authenticity signed by Brad Whitford.
