This guitar has seen quite a lot of playing, however the wear is relatively minimal considering its age. The fretboard has some usual markings from years of playng (see photos). There's some usual playing marks and chips (pick scrapes, polishing swirls). There are some larger paint chips on the bottom horn, where the thigh sits.
The most notable damage is a split in the neck. It is very thin, and runs through the dead center between 2nd and 5th fret. It doesn't appear to have affected the guitar structurally at all, and it's almost impossible to feel. It doesn't look as though it will get any worse, unless the guitar is mistreated.
Functionally, the guitar works perfectly, and sounds fantastic.
Cimar guitars were made in Japan in the late 1970’s and early 80’s. Like many others, they copied many of the better-known guitars of the day. In the 1980’s they even copied Ibanez guitars. This particular guitar is a version of the Ibanez Roadstar ll and Blazer.
Cimar was a Hoshino Gakki brand. Hoshino Gakki also produced Ibanez guitars, so there’s no surprise that they turned out guitars that were close copies.
