No, the treble side has been chiseled out. The table that the p90 sits on should go across the neck side down to the treble side connecting with the bridge side of the route, the wire channel looks correct. Easy to fix if you have a router.

Normally you can see the neck tenon joint south of the pickup route too. What is this? (I am thinking about the DC version)

This is a single cut. There are only few pics of LP Specials cavities in the net. The pics I saw, the cavities all look different....

Ah! That makes sense. I wonder if it was a Junior reworked? Rerouted and binding etc?

as far as I know it always was a Special, only refinished.

might be just the pic, but that one Jimi is playing looks like a dark wheat color.

I'm pretty sure Hendrix is playing the Special that I now own.:slash:



Or at least one that looks like mine. :hmm:
:shock:
that would be very cool, i know the "Wind Cries Mary" sounds quite stellar on a special.

Mysterious. Maybe it had a mini humbucker fitted at one time?

A singlecut Special has a box neck joint like a SC Junior so there is no long tenon.
