    Who Knows Wood?

    As I said before, hard to judge from pics, note that the close up and camera flash in your guitar pics puts in evidence more clearly the texture, grain, pores...ebony polished surface usually looks almost like a "metallic" surface to me.

    Some corvette III owners there?

    I´m not a Gretsch owner yet (unfortunately, plus lefty player :( ), I´m still trying to agree with a friend of mine (living in Miami, FL) to get a lefty G5435 for me (not available in Agentina, or maybe by demand but a lot of extra $$$$ charge).
