I like the clear coat, unstained body and neck.  Sounds very sweet, it has a rich, full sound.  Yes, Gene, It is made from native Canuckistan hardwoods : wild cherry (3-layer laminate) body and cedar neck. Not sure about the origin of the rosewood fretboard though.

Ah, didn't see those the first time. You could put a candle down in there inside a little holder; it'd probably look pretty dang cool.

Saw this back in May, on the sale table at an artists' coop. Talked myself out of it. But went back that way today, and decided if it was still there I HAD to have it. Reduced another $10!

I picked this up yesterday for a song. It had been sitting for at least 10 years and I expected a lot of catch up work / maintenance to get it running. I changed the fluids and checked the plugs and the impeller. The impeller was soft and complete, the plugs looked great, so I put some fresh gas in the tank and gave it a pull.  Two tries and it popped to life and settled into a nice clean idle with barely any choke.   I ordered a new impeller just because, but I think I got a gem. Not bad for a 37 year old engine used in a corrosive environment.

Oh, and old Honda naming conventions - it's a 7.5 HP. 

 
I was kind of mad when my mother gave away my father's 1950s 5 1/2 hp Johnson. She sold the (newer) tinny on the condition that they took the motor, too. I didn't really have a right to complain though because I didn't have a place to store them. But that was a great motor.

I'm just amazed at the condition, and the fact that it started right up after sitting for a decade. My mercury was a 1997. It had been sitting for about 2 years when I got it, but it took a full fuel system rebuild, there was pitting in the pump chamber, so it ate impellers, and even when I had it in fairly good shape it was a bitch to start and get to idle until it was warm. 

 
Most people would think you're a geek.

Not me though,and I'm really anti-social.

 I had to clear out some space a few months ago and had to give up my Sears Ted Williams 7.5 HP.It was in the basement for about ~20+ years.

It's like when Jim Kirk lost his son to the Klingon guy from Taxi and the BTF trilogy.{#Sad}
