    According to the serial, isn't that a '12 model? Tuners also consistent with that?

    Sorry, but that aging is hideous.

    Odd tail piece, like the Perry Burst. Aging looks like shit. Does Henry do it?

    Aging looks awful. Waayyy too uniform. Same as all of the others I've seen. The Music Zoo has a few on their site and the checking patterns are uniformly spaced and repeating. And every single checking line goes all the way across the entire body. Never seen real aging anything like that.

    So what you're saying is they are making the 2013 guitars closer to the original but the aging is getting worse?

    Not a fan of any sort of aging, but I sure like the back color on this one!
