It has never been taking apart, and I'm not about to now. It is All Original, I got from orig (old timer) owner. You swear you was playing a PRE CBS Fender Stratocaster the Bell Tones this gives you.. I have no reason to lie....
I sold a million of these, I kept this one for I'm guessing over 13 years I've had it, because this was the Best one I ever heard or played... Why am I selling it? I owned all in this shop, I never get bored..:)
