I like the "will need intonation redone" comment, considering intonation can't be adjusted with that fixed wooden bridge (well, if I recall correctly it slides toward the neck or away from it, and can be pivoted slightly from the center point, but the individual strings can't be adjusted).

I played an original Armstrong back in the 70's in a music store and the thing was awful. Sounded like a can of rusty nails. But if you dig that sound, they are great. ;)
