    Just grabbed this off of reverb for a decent price, all original except the pickguard and body/neck refinish.

    it took 3 days of negotiation.... they wouldn't come down to the price I wanted and then it went on sale. So I paid a little over what I was initially offering.

    I had one for a strat of mine a while back - they're the real deal for sure in terms of material, cut etc. Plenty of the mint green ones out there are just tinted plastic - your guitar deserves the best!

    I saw this one as well. Thought the initial asking price was too much and when it went down somewhat better.
    Beautiful acquisition! Not my favourite colour though, but like you said, results of the poll show it is for many.
    Let us know how it plays and sounds. That is still the most important thing.

    dudeman, do you remember what the date stamp on the pickups was?

    They said it were the best sounding '64 pickups they heard. Just interested to compare to mine... ;)
