No modifications. Although as of now it does need a major overhaul. I purchased this guitar in 1996 or 1997. I bought it brand new from a local music store. They must have had it from the day it came out until, I broke down and finally got it. Seems like they had it for about like 3 years. I had played it several times and I knew if I did not get it then that I likely never would, so obviously I did it! That was a long time ago now and I remember it only being between $400 and $450 which seems like a pretty good deal now considering some of the prices I have been seeing. That hardly matters to me though. This is my guitar and I really do love it! I don't know what I would do without it, or music in general. Thank you.
