Just picked it up a couple of hours ago! Got a super deal on it so I couldn't pass it by. G&L Registry Admin. provided the following info: Birdseye Maple neck with Polished Gloss finish over Hand-rubbed Gun-oil Tint, Ebony Fretboard, Sperzel Locking tuners. Apparently, it's completely original with the original case as well. I haven't had a chance to remove the neck so I don't what the build date is except that it falls somewhere between 1998 - 2010. I plugged it in briefly and it sounds very Strat-like in all positions. The 12" radius fretboard feels really good - the playability is top-notch.
