Vinyl/CD/DVD : has been opened, but is still flawless
with no damage whatsoever; no visible marking, plays perfectly.
VG+ Very Good Plus / Copertina e cd-vinile-dvd ottimo
Vinyl: May have scuff marks and signs of some wear but
will still play almost perfectly throughout, with only
"barely detectable" crackles or pops. A slight noise at the
begining is allowable, but the remainder must be nearly flawless. Definitely no scratches or gouges that a touch with a dry finger can feel.
CD/DVD: may have some scuff marks and lights signs of some wear.
Cover: May only have the slightest signs of normal wear.
VG Very Good / Copertina e cd-vinile-dvd buono
The majority of records (worth selling) fall under this grade.
Vinyl: May crackle, pop or make other annoying noises, but only
occasionally,never continuously, and not more loudly than the
music being listened to.
CD/DVD:used with scuff marks and lights signs of normal wear. Visible scratches but plays perfectly all the way through
Cover: Normal used cover wear such as ring wear and split seams.
If there is abnormal damage such as tears or markings,
but the seller still feels that it qualifies as a "VG",
the damage must be described in comments attached to the item.
G+ Good Plus
Vinyl: May have continuous crackles, pops, etc... but not so loud as to
make the music completely unlistenable or unenjoyable to the
casual listener. Might also have "nasty little scratch" causing popping on one or two more songs, with the rest of record playing fine.
CD/DVD: used with marks and signs all over; it plays.
Cover: More than normal wear and tear.
EVERYTHING GUARANTEED TO PLAY OK AND TO BE FREE OF DEFECTS
