    The body doesn't look right to me or the explanation of the routes looks like its been done to be deliberately deceptive, takes a fair bit to remove the worm route but the depths don't look deep enough for that .

    Plus it never left fender with that neck stamp.
    Looks to me like a collection of parts that was never a complete guitar , would need a lot of in person inspection to say whats what there imo.

    Edit the photo there is of an unmolested 61

    Lol about what the photo I posted is of an unmolested 61 to use as comparison not the 58 blue beagle posted about for some reason.

    We obviously can't tell what the body is with the mangling of the routs and no other identification on it. But the neck date? Looks more like random black paint that pulled off the body.
