it's nice,but I don't really like the looks of a heavily flamed strat neck.doesn't seem to fit the guitar,I never saw any vintage strats with a flame like that!

By the way it's written in catalogs that SE1200 is supposed to have amazing "SQUEEZE" pickups but they looks very similar to SE800 pickups...

one pic of the body back looks like it indicates a 2 piece body; just thought that was odd ................
I can't be the only one to notice that :-? ; well, maybe so .................

something funny going on in that neck pocket too ............

I hope whoever forks over the big bucks is ready for a let down ............

Looks to me to be a 1 piece, the lines on the back are not straight and tend to arc top and bottom

check the grain on photo 7, between the trem route cover & the neck plate, then get back to me :wink: ...................

that is not a 1 pc. body; lumber does not do that funky BS ................


anyone that expects to get a 1 pc. body from that guitar will be getting a rude awakening but hey, it's only a dead tree, right? .....................

I'd have to agree that from that pic it does look like a 2-piece

Yeah, that is the pic I posted the link to before your post :P. Odd thing is, you cannot see that line in the top photo via the pup cavities nor in the trem cavity unless it is a pancake, which I would find very hard to believe. I think it is a 1 piece but let's just agree that we disagree lol.
