I agree. That was their goal when designing the aesthetics of the guitar. They didn't want to copy any thing, but wanted to make a guitar that looked like it was made in the golden age. Well, the boys have sprayed colour on the top. A new update should be coming soon!! Thanks Bender! Thanks plowboy. I've got a few amps... A beefed up Tweed Deluxe/Harvard hybrid by a local amp genius, an 18 watt Marshall by Winfield Amps, and a Blonde Deluxe. They use Jescar 51x108. When I had new frets put on my 1964 Strat I went with those same frets. They are perfect.
