Neither of us had ever seen one of these in person and had to look it up to double check it’s authenticity. But sure enough, Fender made a few of these guitars in the early/mid 1970’s. The flower tattoo is the only non-original feature you see on this guitar. Boy, did it sound great after The Works set-up and a little clean up of the electronics.
