This guitar is sure to impress! Tons of value for the price in this take on the 50s classic. I'm not exactly sure why they call it the Mary Kaye - I thought that was reserved for Blonde Strats with gold hardware, but who am I to say..
Misnomer aside, this is a really sweet axe. It plays well with low action. The Lollar pickups sound just right. The guitar is light and the back of the neck has the right amount of relic work for that worn in feel. The body is lightly relic'd as well, but not over the top at all.
The original owner changed the pickup covers, knobs and back plate out. The originals are in the case. All wiring and everything else is original. The strap buttons are for straplocks, but the originals are in the case as well. The case is simply rad just by itself..
