We have a Tom Dixon copper ball. It's a piece of crap in terms of quality control, but it's a nice looking lamp when you don't look too closely at it.
Thanks to fewer health regulations, Africa would be the perfect place for spraying unplasticized nitro.
The newer one has a slightly thicker neck based on raw measurements, but I had Gibson soften the shoulders a touch versus the harder 'C' profile standard on the 1959 reissues.Both guitars are Sunrise Teaburst. The newer one has more pronounced flame, but also more mineral flecks. It is arguably more "vintage" looking for that reason.

Second, one of the huge advantages of a mirrorless body is that it can be easily adapted to take lenses made for different mounts.Hence. looking at the bigger picture (ha ha, get it?), I would not focus (oh man, I kill myself) on what proprietry lenses are made for this or that system. Rather, I would get the best camera with the largest sensor possible in my budget. If you...
Try out the Wren & Cuff Caprid fuzz.
When I'm sure I'm going to keep the guitar.
