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!

• New Custom Bucker pickups that are only available on Historics and not available after market.

• Slightly darker cream binding.

• New color formula for Goldtops, adds a bit more green and depth to the finish. Also new finish to back and sides that adds more depth and richer grain presentation!
