    I've mentioned this before but I've had my share of vintage Strats...the 'mystical one' being an all original '61 that I let get away from me. Boy, what a guitar it was.
    However,
    back in college, I bought a '72 Strat in 1976 out of the local paper ( remember those days guys? Ha! ). Sunburst with the rosewood fingerboard ( I guess that's rare right?) very light weight and that damned Strat could sound like ANYONE! It was so cool!
    How I let those two get away from me is well, oh well....

    I've got a 72 Strat myself in "butterscotch." Just a killer Strat. Rings like a bell.

    I'm not a big fan of natural Strats myself, but I agree the rosewood board really makes it a lot more palatable. Although I know you stated that's the original pickguard, maybe a tortoise guard with the same pickup covers and knobs would bump it up another notch!
