The white tends to yellow over the years and this one is a nice ivory color showing very little of the usual arm wear. There is one ding in the top on the bass side as seen in the pics. Otherwise, its a very clean mandolin. Original finish and hardware, including the impossible to find white pickguard. Neck is straight, frets are good, no repairs, and it sounds and plays great
