Regarding the pics, you will see in a lot of them having what looks like tiny white dots on the finish, especially on the black areas. This is my old out of date camera (over 20 years old). There are no white specs on the guitar.
When this guitar was new it was sent to a large wholesaler in Nashville, TN. This wholesaler receives new guitars for a variety of reasons: Overstock, Discontinued stock, Store returns or minor repairs. I am told that this guitar needed nothing to be done, so my guess is Overstock or a discontinued model. After the inspection has taken place the guitar is stamped lightly on the back of the headstock "Used" to avoid fraudulent warranty claims.
This is not relevant to this guitar, because it is used, not new.
This is a really nice guitar, and plays well. A couple of weeks ago, I had my luthier do a checkup, lightly clean and oil the fretboard, and restring it. The guitar has almost no fret wear of consequence (check the photo). It has no scratches through the finish, and is overall very clean. Being rated "very good" will make you very happy.
