The Dawn of the Yellow Sun is upon S  
In this edition of Guitar Tales we are still under the influence of our Natural Yellow Sun. Every day it rises and gives us new opportunity to write the story of our lives.  It can be as joyful as we wish. What will you write today?
In the last edition of Guitar Tales, it was a Top T Classic arrayed in Natural Yellow Sun that illuminated these pages. But now, the dawn of the S is upon us and rises as Drop Top Classic.  Besides its most apparent S body styling, this Drop Top Classic’s most notable and influential difference is it's body wood. 
The Top T Classic from the previous Guitar Tales featured a Swamp Ash body-back, finished in un-tinted Natural Gloss, lending airy and open signature Ash tonalities and timbre.  
But this Drop Top Classic is the first Natural Yellow Sun to be seen with an Alder-backed body.  The auditory gift of the Alder body is accentuated giant S tones—full low-mids with predominate upper mid-range clarity and dominance.  Single coil fullness thrives under its tutelage.
Drop Top Classic—now shone in Natural Yellow Sun.
