Excellent to mint condition -> There are few minor scratches here and there, but the previous owner used it and had the cover case. This is also part of the sale (not in pictures) therefore was kept in excellent condition. The back rubber stand has 3/4 one is missing (but is not required). Excellent function working -> All features and functions are working as expected, the recoding feature has not been tested however our technician believes it records with no issues. There is some very small static sound when the reel is on pause (on loud volume only), however this is very minor and negible, besides the above the item is almost in mint condition.
