The Classic
Alder
Olympic White

Swirling and moving with unceasing motion, change is all around us now. Everyday manifests something different as it is born anew, yet still contains the same life lessons until we learn and grow in our depth. Choose to grow deeper, for it is inevitable and paramount to inner peace.

The Holiday Season—this auspicious time of the year represents change and rebirth to many of the major cultures of our world. On some level, all realize that change itself is the matrix from which all is formed; otherwise there would be nothing new. And new is fun. When approached from a happy and welcoming heart, good easily arises and is the permanent result in this world of impermanence. Here you may rest.

Change, the same and yet different! What does it mean? Why Olympic White—with assorted vintage flecks—is what it means.

Editor’s Note: Stop right there! We know you have heard of Olympic White but what kind of color name is Olympic White—with assorted vintage flecks—anyway? Last week’s Guitar of the Week contains the answers to your color question and this intriguing name.

Yes, last week’s Guitar of the Week caused quite a stir as it moved us deeply, down to our very vintage roots. Take another look and a deep breath…now let it out. Ah, true traditional beauty. If Jimi were still with us…he would want one too…with an all-Maple neck, of course.

Anyway, after much praise and many accolades were heaped upon The Classic from last week, the most frequent question asked was, “What would it look like with a Tortoise Shell pickguard?”

Well, it just so happens that we know the answer to that question. It is the same but different. Still very vintage, it takes on a whole other character and personality, while remaining the same underneath it all. What does this mean? This question we cannot answer for sure, other than to reiterate what has already been written: Embrace the light...and too, the light of Olympic White—with assorted vintage flecks.
