Very pretty.
Does it have the "flaw" where you see the transition from binding to Maple cap to mahogany in the cutout?

Sweet - that is a beauty. [thumbup] [thumbup]

Curious do Traditionals all come with Speed Knobs? It matters not in the least, but I just didn't think they were "traditional".

In fact Speed Knobs were the first ever used on Les Paul guitars. They even were somewhat taller in the early years.
