    I'm still really tempted by these!!!

    Just ordered a Road Worn LE in Classic Copper though...so I may have to be a bit patient.

    Has anyone snagged one of these? Or at least played one?

    I don't like that darkened spot in this flat sawn neck. That's evidence of a void/soft spot.

    I'm not sure about this precise body finish. Too much like the early 50s blonde furniture that doesn't sell at the Antique Mall anymore.

    But the skunk stripe in "Butternut/Italian Walnut" is really cool. Never seen one like that before.

    What are the benefits of having a nitro undercoat vs a poly undercoat? Is it an acoustic, aesthetic or visual difference? I'm genuinely curious to know.

    Would someone please tell me what AO means, probably obvious but I don’t know.
