Interesting how in the lower bout [bass side] you can see a bit of cherry where I assume many an arm rested. Not sure but I dont recall seeing any bursts with that feature.. normally there is wear in the lower bout where your forearm would rest, I guess in this case its been exposed to UV's whilst being played and then popped into the shade or case - so that area never fades much..
Very nice guitar - look slike its been well cared for over the years.
I think it must have been exposed to sunlight with something over part of the front. It is like there is a stripe across the top from the middle of the body on the bass side to the bottom of the guitar on the treble side.
