I agree the jack looks factory. A refinish would destroy the flame veneer.

It's unusual but not unprecedented. My LS model has a two piece join in that area but it's only visible in the neck pickup cavity.

I'm no expert on the Fender styles but everything apart from the neck looks weird to me.

My advice? Get rid of it. It looks ...

MIJ LS70F. Page 10 of the '99 catalogue. Knobs and truss rod cover are not original. What's going on with the headstock? Is it an overlay?

Got a very angry reply from the seller, a self-confessed 12 year old with terrible spelling.

I give up.

EDIT: Changed manufacturing region to 'unknown'. At least it's not fraudulent any m ...

EDIT: I've done so, but there's no harm in others pointing it out to him. Let's keep an eye on this one...

But shouldn't it then get these cracks over the years ?

No, it's only pure nitro that develops the cracks (known as 'finish checking'). I've got a guitar with a nitro/poly finish that's now 15 ...
