What does WOL/STOL etc mean?

After each grading of the vinyl. Ex/VG etc, we make abbreviated comments to help you understand the exact condition of the record you are buying.

These are the most usual :-
WOL...Writing on the record label..An S in front means Small..
TOL...There is a tear on the label...(S..Means small again)
SOL...Sticker on label...
LD...Label damaged

These may appear in combination. eg. Ex+(WOL/SOL)
In this case the record is in Ex+ condition and has writing and a sticker on the label.

Our vinyl gradings are as follows G/G+/VG/VG-/VG+/Ex-/Ex/Ex+/Mint

We really do try to grade well and fairly. Its in nobodys' interest to have unhappy customers!!

If you see 2 gradings ie Ex/Ex. The first lettering applies to the sleeve or cover. By far the most common grading is Ex or Mint.
