    As someone who still writes letters (and sends them out ..... stamps and all) and who loves to get written letters back, I can appreciate good penmanship.

    I too noticed that the writing on Tacoma labels is usually quite clear; not really nicely written, but easy to read. However, I've seen a few that made me wonder why they let the person, who wrote up the following example, anywhere near a label; or a pen for that matter!



    ......... and what happened to the double-S at the end of BlueGrass?

    THAT label looks like it was written while inside the guitar. With the strings on.

    My handwriting is horrible. I think the only thing I ever write these days is a rare check, and there is a 50/50 chance I'll have to do it twice.

    Wait..... Hans, do they write the label first and then stick it on? Or do they write it after it's stuck on?? That would be dumb!! I know YOU have an example of the D65S limited run labels which you shared with me back in the day (years ago) and they were all so precise. It's like they went out and bought a special pen just to do the labels!!! I forget the # but it was fun to see another other than 11!! Why would they stick a label like that on a guitar?? I'd be horribly embarrassed!!! Jeeze......

    The writing is done before the label goes into the guitar.
