Its a 2018 American Standard.
Olympic White
Rosewood F/B
Mint Green P/G
Compensated saddles.
Locking tuners.

I'm going to replace the strings, condition the fretboard, and set/check the intonation - the usual stuff.
I'm going to open it up too and see what the guts look like. I don't expect any surprises.
I tuned it up, plugged it in, played it for a while. Its everything I knew it would be.

I spy a page from The Real Book in the background. Do you think it's worth it for a jazz-curious hack like me to get a copy?
Absolutely! I think there's a PDF version available now.
Learn your "E" and "A" form Maj7th, Min7th, Dominate 7th and Minor 7 b5 chords, (if you don't already) and you'll be dangerous!
