    Beautiful color, and I’m a fan of maple necks they bring out the color much better.

    Small headstock HWY1 in that condition. Hardcase or not, 650 is a heck of a deal. It's rare to fine a HWY1 in that good of shape.

    Crazy condition really. I bet I’m not the only one with paintwork like this...

    Wow! Is that self reliced?

    To be honest, I'm trying as much as I can not to have a large amount of paint scrapes or dings, I constantly use it though but I'm just sooo careful if it will bump to my chair or any furnitures in our apartment. :D

    It just falls off when you look at it. The Acrylic is very thin and brittle. Once it starts, in this case a small belt buckle rash it just gets bigger and bigger. It has been one of my main guitars for 14 years though.

    Mines a small headstock 06 on the change over so could have some bits from both. I remember it came with a sticker or a tag with something about nitro on it. But I’m pretty sure it is acrylic lacquer.

    I did a double take with your backdrop I almost thought you worked at Sweetwater.

    You probably don't need another but the Players are nice to play around with tweaking. Here's my no see um tiny ding discounted one from SW and the $500 Adorama Lake Placid Blue. Keep an eye out for that deal again. Sweetwater makes it easy with the payment plan also.

    BTW HWY1 was the right choice. But that light finish looks too easy to wear for comfort :confused:
