565 or what?

I saw this for sale and the guy "claims" it's a 700 series guitar.

There is no 7xx with a H-S config as far as I know. I only know of a 565 but it looks like another neck was put on it. Not sure of the head color.

Does that sound right or am I missing something here?

Yeah, I sent him an e-mail asking if he took it apart to check the stamps.

Re: 565 or what?

Not actually a prototype, but somehow it adopted that name, and then it stuck. Rare guitars.
