    Green silks in pegbox, green-orange-green at tailpiece.
  2. Reminds me of some old LaBella but can be wrong, furthermore with the metal washer and rubber ring.

    I do love this game,
    But, I hate to lose it so,
    Haiku eases pain.

    My Kay had that same E string on it when I got it in '95. It's a weird high tension string.
