    How GREEN is it? A pic perhaps.

    just a guess: maybe it's yellowed or greenish aged fullerplast pore filler

    "Kondensator" is the danish word for capacitor.

    Never seen it. Looks like a refin.

    And there's enough stuff suspect i'd pass. Wrong year bridge, new pickguard...i'm getting a 'partsocaster built around an orignial neck 'vibe.

    Could be wrong, but that's my vibe.

    looks like a re-fin.

    COULD be a factory re-fin (were they still doing that in '68?), but i doubt it.

    if the neck is sticky, it's likely an improperly applied lacquer to add to the aging "look" of the guitar - one that hasn't cured properly.

    judging by pics (and price!) i'd pass for a cleaner model, or at least one with less questions.

    Isn't that a 70's era headstock? Looks too big to be 68'.
