Ps All the bids and talk about 50/60K was just people going crazy, and then pulling their bids.I have had this guitar for a few days to establish what is is. Here are what I can confirm
The neck is a authentic 12/61 neck. Confirmed by a highly respected Luthier. This neck has a John Birch Logo and that got me to talk with his Luthier at the time John Diggings. He told me that in the late 60’s they would very often replace clay-dots with perloid and change the logo so it looked like a new guitar.
The (mangled) body is authentic Pre CBS which was painted MANY times. Digging through the layers is find the last color (before wood) to be sonic blue, this might be the factory color.
Pots/switch/knobs (appart from one) are 60’s and only neck-pickup is correct.
Tremolo is completely 60’s except for the saddles.
