If you did not like the Rosewood Fretboard that was brought out that year then "Maple fingerboards, 1960-1968: available as special order.

Different than the 1950s one-piece maple necks. These used an actual slab maple fingerboard glued to the maple neck, and no "skunk stripe" down the back of the neck for the truss rod." This is what this is. For full identification specs see:

The history of this guitar for the last 30 years is known, as it has spent all its life in Scotland, spending the last 30 between 2 friends one of which in 1983 thought it would be a "good idea" to have it refretted. A great job was made of this [see neck grain pics] but he also decided to modernise it with a 5 way selector switch, you can see the chisel marks in the body pics. All of this was done by Sound Control in Edinburgh. Unfortunately the new "Silver" logo [introduced in 83] was also liked and fitted to the headstock.

From then until now the guitar has lived in its case under a bed!
Please drop me a line if you think you know what the colour is. I think it was probably Olympic White but 20+ years under a bed does strange things to paint...drop me a line

No need, I have found out the guitar was also repainted at the time of its stupid overhaul. I decided to restore it properly, obtained the correct decals from fender, replaced the switch back to a 3 way, and got hold of a mint scratchplate.
