Heads up- I actually bought the same guitar off of ebay a couple of weeks ago-it was advertised as a center seam Flame top Maple-dimwitt I am-I bought it as soon as she arrived I took out the pickups and low and behold- no center seam-in fact the maple seam was about 2" off from the center-I actually took detailed pics and and sent to seller -he refunded my muhlah and relisted the guitar without the real maple flametop.
Regards,
mike
ps I never even played played it-

if I`m not mistaken Fender didn`t center join their guitars in the beginning as well. I have a Bacchus tele clone that is joined the way you described... and the guitar is supposedely a reproduction of an early 50`s Fender USA model... except it came stock with Fralins. Beautiful tele too. I read at several sites that center joining is a way to save lumber and therefore reduce costs, so it`s not unheard of.
