    If it was mine, I'd definitely take some paint stripper to the trem cavity to check for a pencil date. Being that you can still see some original paint, it's highly likely the date is still intact.

    Beautiful guitar.

    From the picture of the trem cavity, it looks like you could stick a flat head screwdriver (or a butter knife) under that paint and lift it away! :cool:

    Mine has refinished with clear coat and it turned cream yellowish. I found in the area the arm stays the clear coat went away a bit and Olympic white paint appeared a little. Sometimes I want to peel off the clear coat from the whole body. Because I like the pale white

    That white looks good! Yea I would like the original blue also, but that looks great! I bet it plays amazing. Only thing I would change is the tuners since they are very big and would cause problems accidentally pushing adjacent ones that you had just tuned.
