Thanks for the posts.Yes this guitar is very clean and it is original except the tuners have been changed for repros(originals are in the case)Date On the neck is 10-56 and the pot codes read as 20th week of 1956(or 1946).Neck plate number starts with 16xxx.He bought it in 1957 with a 1957 Fender Deluxe tweed(my friend is keeping the amp).

I picked up one of these at a pawn shop a few years back. I spotted it and asked them to hold it while I got cash from an ATM. They were asking about $395 for it, w/case. I did go to the ATM but also ran by my house and looked one up on Ebay. They were going for about $1300 then. I went back and bought it and to make things sweeter, I found the original owner who told me all about the guitar. He wanted a Strat but could only afford a Duo-Sonic. I sold mine for a little over $1300.
