Modifications

The original tuners were re-installed, leaving the post holes slightly too large. I bought some conversion bushings and replaced the originals once again with Grover 18:1 Sta-tites.

Unusual factory features

Transition model with oversized F holes.

Bought this guitar third hand from Kijiji (like Craigslist). SInce then, I've found out that the second owner of the guitar was GDP member Journeyman. Unusual thing is--I already own one of Journeyman's old guitars (a 125th Anniversary)...
