Found in a Melbourne second hand instument shop in 1975, this gem was originally a sunburst with black scratch plate, but had been sprayed white. I took it back to the Canterbury workshop in the late 70's and the crew adjusted neck angle and re-shaped frets - No charge was the reply - built to last and lifetime guarantee. Has anyone else got one ?

Yes I think I have one with the serial #151 It is packed away in the shed with heaps of other guitars. From memory it was also sunburst. I think I also have a similar vintage but more mustang/strat type.

: had one of these and loaned it to a 'friend' in the late eighties, after which it magically disappeared. Been periodically pissed off about it ever since, as it was a really nice guitar. Mine was cream colour.
