The late Dr. Phillip J. Petillo was a luthier for many stars, engineer and scientist. In late 1972/early 1973, Mr. Springsteen bought from him a 1953 rebuilt Fender Telecaster with a neck from a 1950's-era Fender Esquire, for $185. See "Bruce" by Peter Ames Carlin, and http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/Phil_Petillo_Master_Luthier_Engineer_Scientist_Inventor. I recommend Googling Dr. Petillo and also looking at the store's Website. Dr. Petillo was a true genius.
