They're both beefy but the blue one is an absolute monster. There's no evidence of a truss rod on that one so I'd assume it only has a steel bar inside the neck. Despite that it's stayed straight in its 63+ years of life.

They're so cool, you could imagine them being built out of left over parts from a Cadillac or something!

I took some family photos of the Japanese and American weirdness we've got here. There's an estimated 632 attoparsecs of twang in these two photos.
