PCM'ish looking headstock... with a German bridge?

Never seen a neckplate like that one though. Thoughts??

Pretty sure it is PCM. The white logo plate with the goofy logo and the white "X" inlay in the headstock points it that way.

looks like it may well be a very early version of a PCM. Headstock logo is PCM for certain and body looks like early PCM styles.

I too am going with PCM. I have seen that neck plate on some Tiesco and Kay guitars. Not the plywood neck.

That neck is in line with old Teiscos and later Kays after they were purchased by Teisco. That is the same lamination process that Framus used.
