Sheila -- this is absolutely gorgeous and should do well in the contest -- whatever category you assign it to. Despite all the editing you describe, it looks effortlessly perfect. I love it! (and I agree with the comment above re the vibrations -- so cool!) #3948861

Thanks Pam and Roger... Another of spouses very very treasured 'toys'.. I even left the dust on there, thought it was cool... would you believe that etched on the back of this guitar is 'e.pressley', lol... yes I am sure the king of rock owned this, eh? I appreciate your interest! #3949060
