    that's how they used to make 'em back in the day. the body's a little different, 1 piece brass bridge, dot inlays, EMG's...
     
  2. its real.i just never saw a head stock on one that old.
     
  3. And the really old Warwicks don't have the tuners at an angle! Those old Streamers look strange and too Spector-like for my tastes.
