Looking to buy this guitar. He said it was a 1964 Mustang. Looked for any indication for "made in USA". Unable to find any where. Looks like there was a decal on top the first letter and numbers were-DES 186.826 then patent pending and numbers twice. On the back bottom of neck was metal plate had L 33144. Some one said might be a Frankenstein. Do these numbers mean anything? Would it have to say made in USA? Lastly, have to let him know ASAP-Sat Afternoon. Any idea on value??? Much appreciated, thanks!
look at the butt end of the neck when unscrewed there should be a date stamp on it and maybe on in the neck cavity. and nice 1964 pre cbs : )
