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.
