Cosmetic condition is very good with minor signs of use. This example is also physically clean with no dirt or nicotine contamination. If you are looking for a completely solid correctly operating deck that will provide uncompromised reliable service this machine will meet your requirement. Included will be the WHS repair receipt and the WHS Performance Verification report.
