Original lacquer 10M with almost no lacquer remaining. Stucturally the body is in very good condition with some minor denting or dimpling on the bow. Neck has some pulldown, but could be corrected if you wish. The pads have a good amount of life left and are high quality. It has metal resos in it and is playing very well. This one is gig ready! I must say that when it comes to 10Ms, this is the real deal. It's got the sound and is just the epitome of what a 10M can and should do. There's really nothing more to be said! If you want a 10M that's ready to go and plays fantastic, then this is it. Contact Simon for more info.
