    Gorgeous grain lines.
    Looks like my Ltd Ed. American Original 50s, Mary Kaye style. Chambered too, weighs in at 6lbs.

    Amen!
    I like the tone of the white-guard era best, too.
    The staggered magnet bridge pickup and steel saddles are my favorite,
    Th ones made in 1954-58, pre top loader.
    Beautiful guitar!

    as for the gold hardware, I really don't mind the worn out gold look because it will happen.

    You're definitely in but everyone in the club gets to play your guitar to make it official. Beautiful axe.
