Yep ............ '66. I've had it since 1968. All original except for a ground wire I added by just laying the wire strands up from the bridge cavity to the underside of the bridge plate. The other end is sandwiched between the switch and the control plate so the original soldering has not been disturbed. And as you can see, I haven't removed the all original rust from the bridge. Terry ............. it's a shame this guitar isn't owned by a real player like yourself.
