Vinyl Record Collector Grading System

Mint: The record is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality.
The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. As bought from the shop and not used.

Near Mint: The record is Like New, but has been played. The cover and any extra items are Like New. As bought from the shop but used.

Excellent: The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening of sound quality.
The cover and packaging might have slight wear and / or creasing.

Very Good: The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable. There might also be markings on the cover (previous owner´s name, etc.)

Good: The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some
distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration etc.

The ones we do not stock:

Fair: The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise: it may even jump. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing. 

Poor: The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise etc.. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.

Bad: The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection filler.


  • "Able to shred with the best of them, Elmo also likes to stretch out his notes and phrases in a tasteful melodic fashion-- showcasing his tonal range and trem approach." -
    JP Stratoblogster
  • "His solo melodies are well-crafted and fit well harmonically, he shows flashes of blinding speed but not too often, he even cracks a great joke […]. There’s nothing left to be desired here." -

This truly is guitar music worth checking out. A reviewer for The Ripple Effect put it like this: "On his new release, Unintelligent Designs, a sixteen track solo shot over the bow of the rock mothership, Elmo establishes himself as an elite world class rock guitar master [...]. Unintelligent Designs is an Elmo coming out party of sorts.  It begs you to listen and, if you do, if you listen critically, even if you are not a guitarist, you will come away impressed.  I'm adding Elmo Karjalainen to my guitar Gods list, right up there with the 100 that made Rolling Stone's list."
