I thought this checking pattern was interesting, at least I've never seen anything like it. It almost is wavy like it's following the maple top, and it's parallel with the strings.

Anyone else seen something like that?

I have that on my 2001 Standard, it follows the maple grains more or less. Maple is expanding and contracting slightly on the grain lines. Mine also has those grey mineral streaks.

Still on the fence how much I like that checking pattern. It's starting to get more worn in as I play it in.

I had this checking pattern on my 2013 R0 after I took it out of the deep freezer and hit it with a hairdryer. Now the guitar got a makeover with real nitro and has a horizontal checking.

I might have a tough time sending this away for a refinishing job. ;-)
