2013 Historic spec change overview:

• 1-piece rosewood boards.

• Aniline dye on back and sides on burst finishes. This was original, and discontinued many years ago.

• Hide glue on neck to body joint. Better tonally than aliphatic and other modern adhesives, becomes almost invisible in the joint. Also allows for easier removal of the neck.

• Kluson “Deluxe” tuners – the most accurate reproductions yet!

• Slightly darker cream binding.
