    Funny you should mention the lining - I was pretty taken by it and it was such an awesome background for the yellow.

    I DO! :headbanger::acoustic:,

    It was delivered late afternoon and I had a family occassion so I've just gotten to it. It's magnificent and is a tangerine kinda mix lemon in person in room light. I really did the beautiful VOS work and the real coloring in how the front and back blend. It really looks strait out of the '50's. Now picture taking shall commense!

    Nice pics! :thumb:

    Those "Custom Art and Historic" cases have been my favorite for years now.

    But I must admit that the aged Lifton kinda' just feels right with my aged '58.

    That said, the Lifton does not protect nearly as well.

    The only heads up on the maroon lined cases is that they can 'bleed' red onto lighter colored guitars.

    I think this was the reason Gibson changed them. Too many white guitars in high humidity areas turned red/pink at the contact points. I've personally not experienced this but I have seen the pics.

    I can definitely see the bit of tangerine in those pics. Great top, back and overall color. I used to think I didn't like the VOS treatment at all, but after having acquired one it's really changed my opinion. They seem tasteful and give just enough of a legit aged look. Congratulations.

    Looks great! I love that color with the long grain top!! What country are you in? I ordered from them and mine has been in customs for over a month.

    Thanks!

    USA. It was probably the best purchase I've done - the communication was constant, pictures were taken and delivered throughout the whole process, and it was packed like they were mummifying the pope. I was very impressed. Got it in 3 business days. :wow:
