Got these pretty corners from CB Gitty a while back. In my opinion, these particular corners are too big for most cigar boxes. But they dressed up my much played, much loved reso tenor.

Those are honest pick wear marks on the body and finger wear on the third fret. I put a coat of poly over them and put on new strings (DGBE) and the corners.
A pleasant autumn Sunday afternoon after our first snow this morning. The snow is gone already, but may make future appearances.

Thanks, Alan.  That is my old reliable.

Thanks, Jock.  And the next day I could have taken a pic in the same spot in an inch of wet snow.  And today back to leaves, only a bit soggy.

Nice photo. The autumn leaves fit so well with the rustic look.

I'm with Keith on this one, the corners really enhance the look of the old reliable Tenor Reso :-)

I think so too, Keith.  Thank you, sir!

The corners fit nicely, with the look of the build.

It does, Bob.  Thank you.   I am enjoying it even more.

A bit of fettling and sprucing up a faithful old guitar can bring much enjoyment!

Thanks Pick!  From both of us.
