    Nicely turned out! I love the slightly bigger guard on that shape. Like a mini-jumbo thang. Please post us a sound clip if you can!

    Thanks. I'll post a sound clip as soon as I can. She sounds fantastic! Especially with a pick.

    Thanks. It is! I almost think that I need a rhinestone suit, hat, and cowboy boots to go with it. I sunk a ton of money into it to get her back in shape. But man! It was worth every penny. She's good for another 78 years.

    What a great outcome for a terrific little tenor... You made really good choices, I think.

    That's a very pretty guitar, congrats. If Waterloo made a tenor they're put that pickguard on it.

    I was just curious. Does Stewmac sell 4 Waverly tuners with the ebony buttons? I only see sets of 6.

    Yes. If you call in your order, they will sell you four of them. That's how I got mine.
