Came across a photo in the steel guitar forum that was pretty amazing, really. Got to thinking (for a change) and realized that some of the instrument makers have had to make some pretty interesting things to try to keep up with the times. I'm just going to post the ad copy below and solicit some wild guesses as to what instrument is being described. I'm sure some of you experts might hit it on the first try, but I wouldn't have. The more stuff changes, the more ad copy stays the same. I have left out a few obvious details... and no googling the ad copy either, c'mon, just make a guess. No one will care, really. After enough guesses, I'll post the ad from which the copy comes, if'n some smart pony hasn't already done that... ...and if you can guess the right instrument and show up at one of my gigs, I'll let you buy me a beer! Ad copy: "Straight grain, graduated spruce sounding-board, ivoroid bound. Maple rim and back; deep, rich Sheraton-brown finish. Satin finish ebonized top. British Honduras mahogany, reinforced non-warpable neck: veneered headpiece with “xxxxx” in pearl; solid ebony convex finger-board with seventeen frets; pearl position dots. Ivoroid sound-hole inlaid with two colored purfling rings. Sturdy machine-heads. Ebony nut. Perpendicular compensating maple bridge; adjustable ebony string saddles."
