Modifications

Replaced G cutout tailpiece with the B3 in pic, which has since been replaced by a vintage B3. Always wondered if truss cover (black/white instead of red) and pick guard (silver instead of black) are original. Both seem era correct at the least.

Unusual factory features

Maple three piece neck. Top is painted not nitron wrap.

I have Firebird,too. S.Nr. 17027. It has a black pickguard and a red truss rod cover.

Wow. What a beautiful guitar. Love the inlays and it looks to be in tremendous condition. Very nice.
