Unexpected; Original Owner late 90s so he claimed. Will check SN. Traded it for an amp I had 320.00 into. Always liked these, and harder to come by than they once were for dirt back in the day. This one Good to VGC. Not bog on gold hardware, but it is what it is. Nice Graphite Saddles and new CTS 500k pots, not my choice, CTS anyway. Small pole magnet pickup in the bridge, like! Neck PU is OK. May put 250k POTS back in it. The usual neck pocket cracks, albeit smaller than my Lite Ash has. It is ASH so the weight of 7.4lb even hollowed seems Ok, yes?
