My recently aqcuired Standard.

Stamped 'Second' on back of Headstock. Apparently the two piece top's seam isn't quite perfectly down the center

Stock except for tuners.

She's a bewdy. I love the classic sunburst finish. How does she play? Is the problem with the seam noticeable?

To answer your question, If you're really looking for it. Really looking. It's just sliiiiightly off.

Playability wise, It's great. Intonation is just about right, and it's already 'opened-up,' i.e. the natural resonance has really come through with years of playing.

Appreciate the questions and compliments!

does she still sport the t-tops? hows the neck, did the finish wear off? thinner profile?

looks like it's in good condition with a dark as hell board.

i asked in the lp thread, but i should probably ask here anyway.

congrats!

Nice find!

It's a real shame that it's a clownburst though.

T-Top Pickups are still there, Neck finish is mostly worn off, profile is slimmer, more in line with a 60's profile than a '50s. I'll post more pics after work.
