Everything is already written, is a stratum.
Noted the tremolo 2 points more than the 6 screws mechanical routine, however, for the purists know that this type of vibrato n'exitait not in the 50s!
My model is sunburst, with it seems, are guaranteed to have an alder body.
The models are now painted poplar. Check.

UTILIZATION

If you like the Fender Staratocaster you'll love this model.

Still talking about the lever vibato home, I find it too long and too curved.
You can always buy to replace the easy mute (Hank Marvin), which comes in 3 lengths 110, 130 and 155 mm. However, about € 50 for a piece of scrap ... a bit pricey.
I have my own shortcut to 130 mmm and straightened a bit tip.
We must regain control over the anchor block tremolo springs, the threaded portion of the lever must be perpendicular to the table, or almost, if you can not screw it! logic.
A little clarification, this setting does not influence the functioning of the guitar, these springs balance the string tension, whatever the setting of the anchor.

We have also to handle, 0.5 mm gaps between the 1st and the 12th box full, adjust the string height, etc. ...

SOUNDS

The sound is not, it's just a case of guitar, we are no longer in the 50s ... What follows, pedals, amps, and effects were equally important.
Again it is a stratum. Everything has already been written.

OVERALL OPINION

Two years without a problem.
Obviously when you removed the plate micro one is surprised ... wiring of the 50s, nothing has changed.

Sacrilege color microphones and buttons, a horrible beige plastic supposed to imitate the old ....., idea what was Fender?
Look at the old models, even 50 years later, the plastic microphones do not have this affeuse color. We must therefore invest 15 € and replaced the so-called palstique old with white. Within minutes everything changed.
For info and pictures of this model have microphones and white buttons, but a photo is not contractual!

The price?
For younger in 1963 was worth a Start En 3000 about 530 €.
If the price had kept pace with inflation it would pay about € 4,800 today!! No comment

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ... Sure.
