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.

The sound is great, hot and well-balanced, with the right amount of grit you'll expect from a '50s maple-neck Strat.

The original finish has lots of checking and wear on both sides, showing the beautiful figure in the wood.

The three-way switch currently installed is new (but with the old original tip), but the original one is in the case, it's broken and I don't know if it can be fixed - but I think it's not impossible.

Everything else is 100% original, including pots, screws, knobs, tremolo arm, bridge and saddles, spring-cover on the back. The flamed neck makes this old Strat really special.

The original circuitry shows potentiometers date February '56, paper capacitor, intact solder-joints, three way CRL selector switch and Switchcraft jack-socket.

The fingerboard shows some wear, but the frets are still in decent condition with lots of room for bending and a nice and easy action.

All the other plastic parts are also original and in good shape.
