Thanks, everyone, for your input.
I'm thinking, if it's OK by the OP, we can let this one sink down off the page now. The guitar's not going anywhere until after I retire this summer anyway (when I plan to implement a general voluntary simplicity/have less stuff approach to my life which will involve divesting of quite a bit more gear and other things than just this one axe).
P.S. to Ben: I'll call you first.
