This is a 2003 AmSe Ash. I got it used, and the only thing even resembling a mark on it are the 2 little spots right below the control plate. I took a close up of the grain because it's so darn nice. It's matched so well it's hard to believe it's 2 pieces. it also came with the molded case etc. One question, I have never owned a current MIA Fender. What is the 5th hole in the neck plate?
