Resurrecting an old thread here for help with a question.
Did some of these Ted DC 245s come with a solid black headstock, and not the grey/black curly maple veneer? I'm eyeing a used '09 that looks to have a solid black headstock, and I've only ever seen ones with the curly maple veneer.
They all have maple headstock veneers, but the detail of the curl may not be obvious from a distance.
I've looked online, but can't find an answer. Which finish came on the Teds?
Nitro! On the production run and the first two production runs.

Thanks Pete. That's what I thought. I just picked up a Ted Soapbar. And while I do prefer nitro, I don't want the rubber padding on the stand to react with the finish.

Found this thread in 2014 when I was researching this model. Hope no one minds me resurrecting it. Finally got around to buying one of these beauties. 2010 Wood Library Ted in McCarty Smokeburst:

"That's not a 'wrong note', I'm just using it as a 'passing tone'.
I owned the McBurst above from GTRMAV, but didn't match my forum ID so had to trade it for the one on the left in this pic:
Here's another shot of the McBurst one:
