Vinyl Grading Guide

*SEALED*  Jacket still sealed in shrink original wrap; disc sold ungraded or "as is."

NM (Near Mint)  Appears unplayed and will bear no marks, sleeve scuffs, or scratches. 

EX+ (Excellent)  May have one or two visible imperfections (i.e. sleeve scuffs, faint scratches, or other superficial marks) that will not affect playback. 

VG+ (Very Good+)  A few visible imperfections. These may include sleeve scuffs, light scratches, or other superficial marks. 

VG (Very Good)  Similar imperfections found on VG+ records but in slightly greater numbers. Records graded VG and above will typically not have any scratches that are deep enough to be felt with a fingernail. 

VG- (Very Good-)  A number of visible imperfections; the presence of a considerable number of light scratches will force a VG- grade, as will the presence of significant isolated defects such as scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail. 

G (Good) Record can be played without skipping, but will have significant surface noise, scratches, and visible groove wear. G+ and G- are used to indicate stronger and weaker copies within this range.

*SW/DNAP* Slight warp, does not affect playback

*QUAD* Quadraphonic Sound, similar to today’s surround sound

All records are visually graded by our experienced staff, using a bright lamp and an Audio-Technica ATLP-120 turntable.
