This is the latest example of the Skylark steel that I've ever seen, though there is one sold example out there on the interwebs from 1966.  

I call this the Flying V steel.  It is definitely the most rock and roll steel out there.  These are made of the same korina wood as the rare, late 50s Flying V and Explorer.

This particular steel is very clean and 100% original.  It has an original case as well and comes with a steel bar so you can get going immediately when it arrives on your doorstep.
