j45nick Posted December 6, 2011 Report Share Posted December 6, 2011 Well, finished the stage 1 cleanup (LOTS of Virtuoso Cleaner and Polish, and a ton of rags--I should own stock in Virtuoso). New Kluson DeLuxe single-line, single rings installed (these are drop ins--same screw holes, still using the old ferrules: they just work a LOT better than the old pat.pending Klusons, which I still have). New TKL 8920 case (perfect fit, as it's designed for the J-200, which shares this basic body plan). Starting out with D'Addario Chrome XL flatwounds, which are definitely an acquired taste (I'm still trying to acquire it). The guitar obviously has lots of cosmetic flaws, but heck, she was born in May of 1947, which makes her four months younger than me. I don't look so hot anymore when I look in the mirror, either. The back photo shows the remarkably sexy backside curves of these carved-top, carved-back beauties. Still waiting on a new repro finger rest, as this one is on the verge of self-destructing even though it still looks good. Sweet Archtop Dreams......
