I've wanted one since the mid-60's - hardtail with "ashtray" cover, matching headstock, late pre-CBS transition logo...

Saw a guy at a block party in '74 with that exact guitar - sounded incredible through a plexi head and one of those rare Marshall 8x10" "refrigerator" cabs - offered him $750 (in 1974 dollars) but no deal...

Similar guitar - only difference was trem - turned up a few years ago at GC for $40K...

Can't handle $5K+ for a Custom Shop job - may just have to cherry-pick a decent Squier CV or Mexi-Strat and lock down the tailpiece...
