Thanks, all. I wont be Pete Townsend-ing it anytime soon.
You'll note the number "10" handwritten under the lacquer on the headstock. I just learned that this number refers to the quality of the top wood - mostly the grain - on a scale of 1 to 10. The dimensions in the grain are unreal.
My acoustic guitar by Taylor has a quilted maple back, which is pretty spectacular, too. But, it's on the back of the guitar, so, mostly, it is hidden to the world. Apparently, the maple back is unusual, too. They usually do mahogany for the whole back carved section.
I'll have to drag out my old amp this weekend and crank up some tunes to play along with. I mostly play the acoustic guitar these days - perhaps this will get me back into the electric groove.
