Very nice look, the body has a beautiful finish and wood-grain.The weight is acceptable if compared to other ash-bodied Strats from the same era. Smooth action, frets and fretboard are in excellent shape.The neck, dated May '56, still has the "clubby" pre-V shape typical of '55; it has some wear and original nut and frets. but, compared to the '55 "no-lines" they have again the single-line stamped Kluson Deluxe words. The black-bottom pickups fixed to the single-ply pickguard have the original bakelite covers, two of which are broken from playing wear.
Probably the guitar has been refretted and the nut has been replaced.
Perfect Spaghetti logo, small headstock with a very beautiful figured wood, Kluson Deluxe "double line" tuners, "L" serial number.
Neck date is September 1964, pots date is 28th week of '64.
Custom color's rarity, light weight and sound make of this guitar a winner.
Excellent action, smooth and easy maple fretboard with frets in good condition.
