    Wow.. seeing that guitar sure brings up a lot of feelings for me with Koss being one of my biggest guitar influences. Mix of regret, sadness and awe.
    Many thanks for sharing these pics.:)

    It just feels like the natural top + beaten to hell combination fits so nice, that guitar would be ruined if it had any color...

    ^^^^^
    To be clear, those photos show the re-finish. That's what it looks like currently.

    I was wondering where were all the wear spots!! But fortunately, they kept the natural vibe, but took all the mojo...

    The finish was SUPER thin on that guitar, look how relic'ed she look. That's in what, 2 - 3 years of use? I don't know for how long he owned it after she got stripped.
