New guy with a new to me guitar.

I'm wondering if it's the real deal or parts and pieces? I know the pick guard is an 11 holer instead of 8. Any other issues?

Any info would be appreciated. Year (I think it's an 85)?

And thanks for the site!!

Hi, tuners have been replaced. Tren Saddles correct. not sure about thescratch plate, is there a spare hole under it as this usually happens on an 8 to 11 conversion. however they have bben known to have non historically correct combos.
