It comes with an original 56/57 Tweed case with red lining. The Tweed Fabric is slightly separated from the casewood as it was once over sprayed in black but now restored by the removal of color into the Original Tweed Tan.

The guitar is original besides a pro refret with replaced nut and a thin old overspray on the fingerboard and front of the headstock. All others blacklight perfectly.
