extra features: this guitar has had a more extensive "relic" treatment to the body and neck, much more accurate than the basic "road worn".  i have been refinishing and restoring guitars, semi-professionally, for over thirty years, and i encourage you to compare photos with actual vintage instruments or "custom shop" examples, and judge for yourself. to push it further, i also changed some parts and neck details.  i swapped in a black bakelit pickguard (fender part#099-2019-000) and callaham slot head screws.  the serial number decal is now located on the butt of the neck and the headstock decal looks as it should. (i wanted it to have a better 50s look, without trying to counterfeit anything.)   i will include the stock white pickguard and screws, along with a black fender hard shell case. shipping cost is for upper 48.
please email me if you have any questions.  i have 100% positive ebay feedback (12+ years/300+ transactions) so bid with confidence.

if you check my sales history, you'll see i don't sell guitars regularly on ebay.  the time and effort i put into into this guitar was to please myself. this is a cool guitar, it looks great and plays great.  common story, i have some new interests, so this guitar needs a new home.  thanks for looking!
