Are there many maple neck 50's replicas but have the 60's 12 screws instead ?

Although it's got 11 screws, not 12.

good spot about the 12 screws, although once knew a lad at school who claimed he could prove that 1+1+1=2.
E mailed the seller about this inconsistency, he has yet to get back to me.

You reckon he's stuck a 60's body and a 50's neck together ? or maybe drilled some extra screwholes ?
Dont know which of those is worse from a purists point of view, althoguh apprently does have the gray botttomed pups.
I'm stilled tempted though , love that particular red. Its a toss up between that and a Goldmist Goldstar with the tuners ripped out then stuck back.
Or maybe better to bide my time til something more factory original comes along

I have seen this a few times on different Tokai guitars. I think this happened at the factory.
