    Teal quilt-top;) That pic is rather dull, it's much prettier in person.

    Quilt-top, of course! I don't know how I missed that one, because my Samick Concord is actually a quilt-top, also... :oops:

    Oddly, I don't have other shots. Most of my guitar photos are just snapshots or phone pics:rolleyes:

    I keep thinking I'll get around to some setup shots. (But subconsciously I must think having good pics is a step toward eBay or something :eek: )

    To-do, to-do, things to-do.

    I've got a Samick Artist Series LP. I think it's around 2001 in year. I'd like to know if the top is photoflame or real wood. Other than that, this guitar seems to be really well built. I replaced the string thru ferrules in the front and back, as the ones in the front had slipped a little and the strings were cutting into the cap.

    Actually I have 2 Samicks. If you look in the first pic, you'll see a Jazzmaster with P90s.

    I doubt if anyone can tell from a photograph, but from all the Samicks I've seen up close, I'd bet on real wood.

    Someone said if you look with a magnifying glass and see dots (dots that make the pattern) it's a photo flame. I can't see any dots. But then, it could be a veneer, right?

    Basically that's what a cap top is. Could be 1/4" or 1/32", but it's a decorative layer of pretty (real) wood on top of the body.:D
