    As always, you guys at S-T are the very best. Thank you everyone! I will need to dig into that wiring and see if there's anything to discover there.

    I'd love to see some better pics of that bridge.

    Anyone recognize it?

    If it is easily available it will be a nice option for building parts casters with the freeflyte bodies.

    Pretty sure the pots have been changed and the cap, never seen Alfa pots in a fender stock.
    Anyone else ever seen this?

    I think I've seen one cracked freeflyte, in all the time I've been looking at the internet. I'm pretty sure it was on this forum as well. Mine has held up great, and I use it frequently.
    The little pins on the trem arm are prone to breaking, Most likely from user error.

    Body looks original, Besides the obvious football jack, and block under the tailpiece, that channel going from the middle pickup cavity to the control cavity is the only thing that looks off on that body.
    It was most likely slightly altered and repainted when the hardtail and jack modifications were done.
