wow, I have one of these, I traded my friend my n64 for it, i lost the bridge though, i may have to get a newer replacement to finish this guitar. It is in rough condition and i don't really play guitar much anymore...

btw... this is not even close to a strat design... it is actually more of a les paul junior if anything.

Well, I got mine all together and it plays very well. Excellent sounds. Fast action neck. The PUPs register about 3.2 resistance each. I put mine on this site too. It is for sale if anyone is interested. Had to replace the original posts and rewire the input jack and it has new strings on it. I spent about 5 hours cleaning this thing up. I think we have the only two left in the world or at least it seems that way when you try to find others.

I just bought one of these yesterday. It\'s got a few dings and dents and was filthy and the tailstop/bridge posts were loose and one has wallowed the hole a bit. But I have installed some locking posts which I had to re-drill the holes a bit bigger so it is a whole new fit. I spent about 5 hours last night cleaning and installing the posts. Will be putting it together tonight. Mine didn\'t have a neck plate number on it but the plate does look original. Picked this one up for $50. I too have searched for info on these guitars and this is the first time I have seen one like mine. It seems everyone has a classical acoustic model. I saw a 74 01 number on the 3 way switch but that is the only numbers I could find. It almost looks like the coils are doubles they are so tall. I will take a reading tonight on the resistance to see what the output is on them. Interesting that the body is plywood.

good thinking. Keep this guitar and never sell it for as low as 150. the ones made in the early 70s have really good necks and some other really good things about them. If it was made really well it's better than some of the fenders. You know, quality control in the last years of America's manufacturing hayday are all across the board, some good some not so good, etc.
