Well it's kind of a '62. The Neck has 1962 date. The serial number dates it to 61/62. The body appears to be original but was refinished long ago. Does anyone have any useful tips for dating a pre CBS body? Everything else on this baby has also been changed. Awesome piece of slab board though. The only thing that worries me is the truss rod. At some point the nut was replaced. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance guys.
