    Says "Silvertone" on the tail. I have a Silvertone guitar. Must'a been sold by Sears.

    It's nice to see a 2 blade design. That's all I know how to carve.

    I think they used the upper half of the tail area for advertising for a variety of companies. Couold be a good thing for WN to consider ... custom tail names or logos for a fee.

    I agree on the advertisement. WE7 has their birds all stickered up with their logo, Wind Blue has WB stamped on their tail, why not windy?

    I was thinking the ads on the tail would be customer oriented like "Leamy Electric."
