    Got her all cleaned up polished the tarnished frets. Cleaned the grime off the rosewood. Taking care not to damage or scratch up the mother of pearl inlays.

    Ordered new butter bean tuning pegs.. I would like to shout out to papa joe for valuing me in on those I had no idea they could be had.. so that being said... watched some tutorials on how to do them and they came out quite nice..

    This guitar is all original and in 8.95% out of 10 in condition... the only thing not are the tuning pegs...

    Guy has one on reverb for $875.00 but his is not original it’s been refinished the inline tuners have been replaced etc..the bridge is not originally it can be seen under 1950’s Silvertone Aristocrat archtop..

    Just not sure. It’s definitely a collectors piece though...

    Neck is like a ball bat but I like it and sounds very resonate...
