I can confirm that the pearl guard was not changed.
Or, the alternate theory that CAEs weren't made at AXL.
We know there are CXS04/05/06 serials out there...it never made sense that one factory would be producing basically the same guitar...one with skunk stripe (CAE) and one without (CXS)...one with serials on stickers (CAE) and one with printed serials on/under the finish (CXS)....one with plain white pickguards (CAE) and one with pearl (CXS)....one with AXL-branded switchgear (CXS) and one without (CAE).
None of that makes any sense.
The Occam's Razor version says that they're made in two different factories, probably by two different contractors.
over here they're offered for 120-140€
which is still a fair price IMO
CAE's weren't made at the Axl plant.
CXS where made at Axl, and that's where the X in the CXS serial prefix comes from.
so I guess this is no longer about what a SE guitar is or what is a ES guitar. SE solid electric, ES electric Spanish.
Thank you Barrie.. Maybe torqued a better term.. Its bent up and the screws are deformed.. Guitar center out of them so had to order be a bit... In the meantime I pulled the pickguard to fix a screw that floats the middle pickup, reset and put an anchor on the back of the screw to hold it down and inspected the electronics... Ugly but functional..
There is mine.. You win..lol..
