    I could be wrong but I think that white stuff is just rubbing compound. You know, from when they polished it up in the shop 22 years ago.

    Yep, it’s buffing compound. Tends to get left behind in crevices like the trem cavity since the real concern is the visible surface area.

    Hahah that's even cooler! I think I'll probably replace the pickup rings with some black ones so it looks original but other than that I'm over the moon with this thing.

    Edit: I give up. Potato quality pics it is. Doesn't do justice for the 10-top though! :ugh:

    You get this from Kijiji? This looks like one I've seen on there recently.

    I’m glad she went to a good home, brother! The top and finish on that one were absolutely exceptional too, one of the nicest Wood Library models I’ve owned to date! Quality on that one was on par with a Private Stock, IMHO! :yum:

    First time I've seen black gold without the burst. Looks killer.

    Sorry for double post, but Core Custom 24-08 model announced for 2018 - I was already gassing for a wood library one with flame maple neck, but if these are at the 'right' price may be hard to refuse!
