My grading scale is NM / VG++ / VG+ / VG / G+ / G / F / P:
NM: A near new album. Record will be just about spotless; close inspection might reveal one or two extremely faint scuffs or hairlines. Record will play near quiet, perhaps some very faint surface noise between songs, likely to have been there from new. Cover will be nearly like new; please refer to photos.
VG++: A very well preserved album. Record will have some minimal superficial scuffs and/or hairlines, likely from sleeve removal and/or careful play. Record will mostly play quiet, perhaps some faint surface noise during quiet passages and between songs. Cover will have minimal overall wear and/or a mild specific defect; please refer to photos.
VG+: A decently preserved album. Record will have superficial scuffs and/or hairlines. Will play with some fairly light surface noise at times, but music will stay well on top and mostly drown it out. Cover will have some overall wear and/or one or two specific defects; please refer to photos.
VG: A fairly worn album. Record will have numerous scuffs and/or hairlines. Will play with surface noise, but music will stay on top. Cover will have more pronounced overall wear and/or one or two significant specific defects but will still present well; please refer to photos.
G+, G: A very worn album; please refer to description and photos.
F / P: A filler copy; please refer to description and photos.
High-end records are selectively play-graded using a Thorens TD 160 turntable fitted with an Audio-Technica AT95E cartridge with Shibata stylus tracking at 2g, run through a Denon PMA ? 500V amp to Dali Concept 6 speakers. Understand that your listening experience might differ due to equipment differences. Mono records are play-graded with amp set to mono. Playing them in stereo might reveal more audio defects due to the often asymetrical nature of surface wear. All records are ultrasonically cleaned followed by an extra rinse on a vacuum RCM before shipping!
