it has a flame maple top, mahogany neck and body, double cut-away, it is a flat-top as opposed to the carved top, stop tail bridge, '59 and JB pups (could be 2 '59 Duncans- not sure- sounds AWESOME though), 3 way switch and 3 knobs, set neck, real pearl dot inlays and schaller tuners. i was told it is a USA Studio but the flat top is throwing me off as i can't find info on the flat top version. everything i see is a carved top with binding - this one has no binding but you can see the maple cap is over a 1/2" thick. the fit and finish makes me think it is a real USA version. the serial # is 646013 - which i think is a '96.
any feedback would be appreciated. thanks.
