Surface noise will probably be present, including pops and clicks. At higher volume levels, the music should overpower any pops and clicks present. Good VG- Vinyl is well played and looks it.
However, the record should still play without skipping. It will have substantial surface noise, pops and clicks. Loss of various parts of the dynamic range will occur due to worn grooves.
