In a letter from Mark Erlewine included with this guitar:

I thought you might be interested in some additional information and background regarding this guitar.

I hand made this Automatic in the late 1980's, and it is the only one of its kind with the unique one piece quilted maple top. It is very rare to find a guitar with the quilt running vertically, as most have only a horizontal quilt or flame. The guitar also has a brass tone plate on the back of the peghead, which was unique to the time period it was made. 

Other owners of Erlewine Automatics include Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Mark Knopfler with Dire Straits, and James Honeyman-Scott from The Pretenders.
