Looks like it could be a repair. Where did you buy it, was it new?

 

I hope it isn't a Chinese fake! Probably just a repair.

 

Can you post some more pictures. Close ups.

I bought it from someone. And he bought it at a pawn shop in America. Sound is just great. I've seen on the Internet Chinese fakes. IMHO I do not think that it is China.

Why is the paint missing at the end of the fretboard?? (between fretboard and pickup??

I do not know. But. Here at the fourth photo also no paint.

Whats going on with those pickup cavities? They shouldnt have paint in them and the wiring looks suspect to say the least!. Can you take the off the plate where the Pots are and post a picture?

 

Did you interfere with the serial number in that picture??

 

 

 

 

 

Regards

It's not paint. This lacquer. Photos are not very good.

And what with the serial number? s/n 041588

Here's another view from the side.
