2005 M-4C Oval Hole

From Hans “Instrument features such “period” touches as large position markers, 3/32″ tortoise side dots (turned them from some .090″ binding), black plastic T/R cover, thinned down binding on fingerboard, pearl nut, and ivoroid buttons. The crowning touch was installing the beautiful tortoise pickguard by Cumberland Acoustic. Tuners are “aged” Gotohs treated with P/C board etchant, stained ivoroid buttons, and eyelets…make them work just like the old F-4 tuners. Am considering switching to Schaller bushings. As close as I could come to the original rosette…has the holly next to the herrinbone. Only difference is that there are more herringbone’s than the originals. The fingerboard is slightly wider than an F-5 and slightly narrower than an F-4…it’s 1-5/32″ at the nut, and 1-9/16″ at the 12th fret”
