cool,,,sweet,,,very nice when seen with the whole git

As you wish...

I may not have a need for an OM size guitar with this in the house. Unless I play out sometime, this will not be leaving the house, and I may then find a need for an OM.

Tell your wife how special that guitar is and thanks for posting the pics. It is in pristine condition, I think it's the nicest oldest Washburn I've seen.   A lot of folks would like to have one of those. In fact I would trade all of mine in a second to have one like that. Very special when it's been in the family.  Danny

She holds this git close to her heart, her grandpa meant alot to her, and he was so proud of her learning the violin. viola, piano and recorder. She had a tough time just leaving it at the luthier to have it checked out. I get a smile from her when I air it out and play with it for a while.

     Your photo is fine, what's on the truss rod adj. cover plate on the one on the left?

That looks like a Grateful Dead dancing bear.  Is that something you had made for it?  I'd be shocked if Taylor made that, but then again, there are a lot of Deadheads out there...and I'm one of them.  I saw that bear tatooed on a college students calf just last week.

Someday, maybe, I'll have a guitar with a great headstock inlay...

WOW......hard to top that one so I won't even try.   I'll just post these two as examples of more commonly seen headstocks.    That's a lotta inlay.

That's a Grateful Dead "Dancing Bear" done by Bill Nichols.

Danny, hehe no way... my LC-1 is brand new and actually looks really nice. Not nice like the uber inlaid beauties some of the other guys have but still a nice looking inlay. I haven't taken pics of the LC1 yet but will post one when I get some shot. The one in that pic is a 1965 gibson melody maker. An oldie but goodie

   OOPS, I just assumed being a "L" and "1" that it was a small bodied acoustic. Thanks for sharing.    Danny

ok, I took a shot of my new gibson acoustic. It isn't a fancy headstock but looks nice.

Edwardtang, that guitar you posted sure had alot of inlay work. Where did you find it? Imagine how much time it took to do all that work!

My Gibson doesn't compare on inlay work but here is another shot of it.
