    Re: Fraulini Caterina - a prototype

    Sounds great. And you have a great feel for the music.

    A side question. Do you know where the case is from? It looks smaller the standard A5 cases.

    Eastman 404...white top??

    I came across this white-topped Eastman 404. It doesn't look like someone has removed the finish. And it has a pickguard reminiscent of an early Gibson on it. A one-off experiment from Eastman? ...

    Re: Old vs New Oval

    Just for matter of interest, my Pomeroy neck is rounded, not v-shaped at all. Pomeroys are x-braced, however. Mike Black does both.
