My wife, CarolCat, won this guitar at the 2010 NorCal Roundup. According to Joe Carducci it's one of two prototypes produced with this color scheme. To me it's like a modern version of the White Princess Corvette produced in the 60's.

That’s a very beautiful example of the modern Corvette. Do you play it often, or does it live on the wall on display? (Either answer would be cool!)
