M- Practically an untouched record
EX Some slight discernible surface marks or minor blemishes, nothing that will affect play in any way.
VG+ A few more marks or light scuffs than an Ex record but still sounds fine for listening and/or DJing. Light surface wear. A used but far from abused copy.
VG Scuffs and light scratches throughout, most can’t be felt. Expect some surface wear throughout the record with light surface noise and possibly a few pops in places. Should still serve as a suitable player copy for listening & DJing.
VG- The record may have some scratches that will be deep enough to feel. Audible clicks and pops are likely consistent throughout the grooves.Expect noticeable noise throughout, NO SKIPS though.
G A record that has been played and not taken care of. Constant background noise will be present. NO SKIPS but such records are the lowest grade likely to still serve as a cheap filler copy for those in need
