Does anybody know what wood they used on the painted bodies? I have a white Artist body from the last production run.

Take the plate off the back of the guitar and look in the electronics cavity, you might see some unsprayed wood. Even the painted bodies usually seem to be koa, but ya never know...

How does magnolia look clear-coated? I may want to refinish natural, if I can't repair some chips in the white paint.
