We have listed this item as clean used as this trade in has been a "case Queen" it's whole life.  Being a used item, it may have some minor play wear in the form of light pick scratches or dings (some of which are impossible to capture in photographs but we've done our best to do so with today's technology).  Rest assured, we have attempted to disclose any known imperfections to the best of our ability and the instrument will still perform as intended.  Most instruments would pass for brand new from other shops.  If you want a brand new one in a factory sealed box, let us know because we can do that too! :)
