    Looks like another Bluesbird AAA in Cherry Sunburst.
    That was a $300.00 upgrade in the '01 price list:

    Looks like he swapped off the knobs for something he liked better, but still:
    Nice score!

    Those knobs look right to me if it's a Corona Bluesbird. Hard to see as the pic is small. Killer top, Steve! If you ever sell it, make sure you list it as an AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! top because every one who sells gets to add at least another A. Seems that way, anyway.

    My Corona knobs:


    '70s: [ S70 | S300ADs ]
    '80s: [ X79-3 | X80s | X82 | X100 | X175 | S281 | BHM1 ]
    '80s: [ Detonator | Liberator + Elite | SF4 | AA ]
    '90s: [ S100 | X170 | X170T | SF3,5 | BB | NB | NB DX ]
    '90s: [ X2000 | X3000 | X4000 | DV72 | BHM1 | JF30-12 | Songbird ]
    '00s: [ SF3 | SF4 | BB-90 | X160R | D55 ]
    '10s:
    [ Jetstar | R30 | D55 ]

    Aha.
    Yes the angle and pic size threw me off, and I compared it to the pic on the back of my '97 catalog. Thought yours had tall knurled knobs and I couldn't make out the G-shields in your pic.
    Still a nice score, though.

    Wow - beautiful top! Really pretty sunburst finish - you're making me miss my Cherry Sunburst BB...

    BTW, the knobs are very deceiving depending on the photo angle - I thought the same thing you did, Al, until I looked at this photo of my ex-Bluesbird...

    It resembles the Bluesbird P-90 Steve sold me a few years ago. That one was basically unplayed too. Not unplayed anymore...

    Wowzer! Beautiful piece of wood, and a suburb job on the sunburst. It was a good day at Guild when they built that one. Congratulations.

    I don't know where Steve finds them. Or why he doesn't keep them. I'm taking bets on when his new one will show up in the FS section.
