I'm trying to decide what strings to put on her once the new head is installed-Aquila's, Worth Brown's, or Martin's.

May depend on the head? Mellower heads can handle brighter strings, bright mylar heads need mellow strings, etc.

Still qualified as a "big score." Still waiting for my first big find.

Looks like a helleva fun project. How is the fretboard?

Judging by the pictures, it's already got 6 strings on it.

Looks like this was $5 well spent! I hope you have many years of enjoyment with this nice little investment.
