I have been using this as my own guitar ever since as it sounds just fine despite the open sores. It is stable at this point, however, so I filled the cracks with CA and will add a few coats of Varnish. Maybe it will become salable . . .

I love that purfling so much. I think you referred to it as the 'poor mans abalone' or something like that. I think it's even better then that.
