Wouldn't it be cool if that started life as an early '50s pine bodied Esquire and later someone traded up (?) to a truss rod '57 neck, then someone (one of the brothers?) added a pup, customized the body, sanded a bit too much off the sides of the body, plugged the pup hole, started a refin, but never completed it (or several refins as toomuchfun suggested). I know, sounds a little out there, but as long as I'm imagining . . .
