    Has he had t for a long time?

    If not, maybe it has been photographed before. The grain lines will be distinctive, so maybe someone can find older pics and history.
    I don't remember seeing it in my part of "the Bible Belt".

    It was pictured in the vintage guitar mag, the one with Garcia on the cover. I was on the last pages readers gallery.

    Did he buy it from Mike's Music? If so I played that guitar, had a thin neck and played/sounded great. The refin was well done too.
