Description

Description:   This one's strange. Body is serial # 1415, neck is # 1412. Pickups are Fender humbuckers from a Telecaster deluxe, but they fit perfectly and all the wiring looks original. Solder joints are perfect and pots date to 1978. The bridge is a hardtail style with roller-saddles, the mounting holes all line up but it looks a bit small in the depression routed out for it. Also the neck has a one-piece rosewood fingerboard with birds-eye maple rectangular inlays. And-strangest of all- the entire neck except for the headstock face has been sandblasted so that it has a satin finish that feels great. The finish on the body looks original, but has checking. From the looks of Ebay, it's been up a few times in the past few months, and according to the earliest description, it started off with wooden knobs, but by the time I got it, it had crappy black speed knobs.
