Heaven! Who did that router job in the neck pocket?? :confused:
No idea! I personally can't hear a difference between a 60's and a brandnew pot.
New stuff, if you wanna play it. Do you replace tires on your car with old ones?
Do you have a larger pic to spot those details?
What kind of "DiMarzios" are we talking about? Even in 1983 they made more than one type.
Judging a guitar by its bridge- and neckplate is like judging a book by its cover...superficial.
Thanks, a short answer to a short and specific question.
The OP didn't ask to read why some guy with an arrogant attitude doesn't see the need to...
Sure, a file is all it takes.

Why this in the Vintage section??
Great, that's the best he can do.
Same here. If the "buyer" isn't interested anymore it's possible but unlikely that the response will be "oh thanks, I didn't know and will adapt...
Some call it Mojo, to me it's filth and not play wear by any means. :)
That's why I asked specifically which guitar you're referring to with your statements regarding refin etc. and your answer was the Reverb guitar....
I can detect absolutely no indications that this might be a replacement body and/or a poly factory refinish.
Which guitar are you referring to?
