    Found this on GC Online listed as Natural. After looking online it looked like it could be a Korina or Walnut. Judging by the pick guard, it was probably the walnut.

    I took delivery today and I am very pleased. I wish the neck was a little chunkier like my 1966 G-400, but the color and fretwork will make me forget about it. I can't even see the fret ends on the fingerboard. The body is 4 or five pieces of solid wood with no veneer. The tuners are aligned well, unlike many of my other G-400s where one will be a little off. There are a few dings, but I don't mind.

    I wasnt looking for another G-400, but I always keep an eye out for Vintage or interesting models. This may be my Drop-C machine.

    Congrats on a fine guitar! I think they used white walnut (butternut) on these which is a nice timber.

    I've never seen that finish before. Looks interesting, but I can't decide if I like it. :hmm:

    Glad you're enjoying your new guitar!
