    I've been stalking this one on Reverb for a while, even made a (rejected) offer - when lo and behold, 15% off for Black Friday week!

    It's dead mint, and I got it for a steal.

    Strings may have even been the stock ones it shipped with in 2017 from @MooreGuitars... cut them off, cleaned the fretboard and neck, slapped a new set on, and good to go.

    I love the satin necks on my SE Holcomb and Reclaimed Limited CE24, and the unfinished rosewood is heavenly.

    Great sustain, sounds amazing, easy to play - I may take it down from the 10's on it to 9.5's. Only mod I've done is gold Schaller S-Locks, altho I'm thinking rosewood backplates...

    The specs are pretty close to what I might have spec'd as a Private Stock!
    • Gray Black Fade w/ masked binding - like a sky before a tornado
    • Seller said "Wood Library Flame Maple Top", but similar listings say "Artist Grade Quilt Maple" which I'm prone to believe - defn looks quilty to me!
    • Pattern Regular East Indian Rosewood Neck
    • Mahogany Body
    • Ebony fretboard w/ abalone birds
    • Hybrid hardware
    • 85/15 pickups w/ 5-way blade
    • Paisley case
    Enough yapping, here's pix!

    Niiice. Love that top.

    If it has a 10 stamped on the back of the headstock, it's a Wood Library 10 top. If not, then it is a Wood Library Artist top.

    That means it's an Artist level top, which is a grade above 10. I figured it would be. That quilt is incredible.
