That's gorgeous John. The white just seems to pop. Looks so clean and ready to be played. Congratulations on a fine guitar.

Thanks guys. Yes, she's every bit a 99/100 perfect. Upgraded to the 14 hole bell cranks but other than that 100% original. The friend I bought her from is very meticulous about his instruments and has kept her pristine. I haven't touched a steel in almost 2 years so I've got some work to do before I'll see my chops again. Thanks

Nice! I've always had a soft spot for that white 'mica they used to use in Burlington. Sure wish my little Gee Ess was that color instead of the far more common bowlin' ball 'mica. Congrats.

I'd say with the current situation, now's your chance!
We've all got plenty of study time...

I remember that back in the day, MSA called their white, "White Tidewood".

Looks like a full load of C6 levers there. Hope you're interested in jazz.

Jim Palenscar has Big E's Basic C6 course. Could be the best 35-40 bucks you'll ever spend; he does a great job of comparing the two tunings and making things quickly make sense.

No, I'm not envious, at all. Mr. Green

No; only 4 levers. The other "levers" are hinges on the cabinet doors.
