    My personal guess is that it was custom made 305/513 hybrid for an artist...
    Let me help you with the pics...

    Another guess is that this initially had hybrid hardware, and at some point the saddles were changed. Could the saddles be of a different material? Steel maybe??
    Judging from the wear on them, they do not look to be brass...

    I think it's pretty awesome. Likely a 1 off especially since I don't recall many 305's with flame tops. Definitely gives me ideas though.

    Looks like it might have a sweet switch too.

    Maybe that splits the bridge?

    That's a good idea actually. Independent bridge split.

    Either way I agree with you it's killer!

    From some gut shots the owner has posted before, it looked like a coil split. Also if I remember correctly, it had only one humbucker mode wired.
    If it was mine (I wish) I would put a small 3 way to go single / clear hum / heavy hum...

    Keeps on giving!

    I just went looking for the previous posts, and the follow-up post about deleting resolved posts, thinking they might have been from the previous owner. Nope.

    Doesn’t have original 513 birds. Almost looks like a CE neck from the headstock. One off for sure. And a nice one!
