It also has the tidbit about a 1963 neck on Alligator... I am still not sure what that was ever based on. Anyone??
A 1963 neck would have a rosewood fretboard, other than a special order. It even has a button-style string tree does it not?
And I still don't buy that it was a '57 special-ordered as swamp-ash either. I believe that Alligator is a '55 or early '56 neck AND body, unless someone shows me the body and neck joint dates otherwise.
