Tell you one thing I learned though:

I didn't know Tokai used the '60s control cavity routing on 50's Strats.

Makes sense I suppose to use one body template for both types of guitar. It'll keep tooling costs down. Also means you can use either type of pickguard.

That's a lovely piece of wood on that ST80 Dude! 8)

Do you mean mine or Kitarist's? Mine has a RW board, so 60s copy.

Well done Wilson. I was wondering who'd be the first one of you men to spot that. As you were. :oops:

(I just saw the 2-tone sunburst and didn't look at the neck. Oops!)

Easy mistake, 2 tone SB and ash body are both wrong for a 60s Strat, as you know. I like the ash, but I wish it was 3 tone, like my ST60. The wood on the 60 is nicer too. :wink:

Well, the Fender ones used to go from 3-Tone SB to 2-Tone over the course of 20 years' worth of sunlight anyway, so I guess the end result is pretty authentic! :wink:

3-5 days = wait until next Tuesday before entering panic mode, surely?

If it was posted on Monday - even without assuming it was later in the day when he'd finished work or what have you, then the courier will probably only start counting on Tuesday.

Tues - day 1
Weds - 2
Thurs - 3 (ie. the earliest it could arrive is today)
Fri - 4
Mon - 5
