    That guitar with the wood repair at the toggle, seems oddly familiar...mind if I ask where you purchased it?

    Frickin' awesome! Congratulations! I bought a Historic version last summer and it became my favourite guitar pretty much instantly. I bet that will be unreal.

    Damn POD. I could have gotten one that nice if I paid 3X what I did :)

    Gorgeous.

    Here is the only mint vintage Gibby I have (1959 model)
