oh cool so that explains why the inlays on the night owl are darker. early 60s neck

This is the photo I wanted to originally post but couldn't find. :mad2: LOL!

1960 Les Paul/SG board on the left, later 1960's board on the right. The difference is very apparent when placed side by side!

Yeah, I should address the issue of the two toggleswitch backplates. Apparently, when they refinished it, they routed the backplate ledge to clean it out. In doing so, they routed too deep. The solution was to just put two packplates on it.

Never seen that before!
