I'll certainly post pics when it arrives, but... any comments?

Look at that weird headstock! I wonder if the body and neck were originally together? it might be a frankenles, but that truss rod cover and headstock treatment make it all worth it... I wonder what the original color was? I wonder if indeed somebody chopped a hole for the middle pickup...

Looks like a lot of mojo in that one! I guess if you find Ivory color like inside the Pup cavities that would support the model 2264 that mcbrat referenced...
