    Very early indeed, this is serial number 02 so I guess that if you are a collector there is only one earlier to grab other than this. Excellent shape, a few tiny non-finish-penetrating pimples in the Seafoam Green lacquer and some very light swirling on the pickguard are the extent of things to report. All original other than a refret requested by me with jumbos at Don's shop in January of 2006, factory etched on the back of the neckplate as such. 25 1/2" scale, 1 5/8" nut width; .800" thick at the first fret and .950" at the fifteenth. Alder body with a tinted maple neck; Telecaster setup at the bridge and neck with a Strat between the two and standard three-way switching with a toggle to allow bridge/neck or all three if you really wanna' roar things up nicely. Wilkinson trem includes the original bar, includes a sweet vintage lacquered tweed hard case. 7 1/2 pounds of chewy goodness, this is a find for either the player or the collector. Serial number stamped into the back of the headstock, etched on the neckplate, and stamped/dated in the neck pocket and on the heel. $1,800 $1,500 shipped / insured CONUS.

    Thanks, it is a slick one. I don't have a radius gauge to say exactly, a solid guess is in the 9 1/2 to 10 inch range.

    Bump for a great guitar. I have one of his Retro Classics and they are fine instruments!
