Note-Resonator back and artwork was re-done by Rene'e in the 2000s
Reason, Crazing of celluloid from 'gassing"
Note" Celluloid Peghead overlay has "Gassed out" and shows severe crazing
Renee can remake this if the neck is sent to her either by me or the buyer.
Certain batches of celluloid's degrade faster than others and this must have been one of them.
It is commonly seen on older instruments that utilize celluloid.
