Very Good– Exhibits moderate use. There is wear to the headguard and grommets, but only superficial scratches and scuffs on the frame. The graphite is not exposed.
Good– Exhibits considerable use. There is extensive wear to the headguard, grommets, and frame. May include paint chips and exposed graphite, but the frame’s integrity and playability are not compromised.
Acceptable– Exhibits heavy use. The frame has been inspected for cracks and is playable, but the longevity may be compromised. There is heavy wear to the frame and graphite is likely exposed.
