The frets will need some leveling, but other than that it looks/feels great.

It looks like the known wood and back shape, I've never seen a beak with a 16" radius though... scratch_head It is original too, you can see the same radius at the board/neck joint. R2 nut. 45° tuners unlike the beaks I know. Also I could almost swear it was painted with a brush when I look at the flat part at the neck joint (the rest is polished to high gloss). Wtf is it??? Were the necks on canadian-made models different? Pearl Inlays could be the E.E. model but I dunno it's official radius.

Almost all of my Beak necks have the 45 degree tuners.....No surprise there.

Can you shot a picture of what you are using to determine the 16" radius on the board?? While it is on the board?

No worries there, I have quality steel radius gauges and tried all sizes between 10" and 20". It is definitely 16", the wood, the frets and the joint too. Aftermarket maybe? It feels right though.

That pic above shows you the right angle, you can even measure it on screen with the proper zoom :)

No ESP there, bent-on thin fretboard and narrow nut shelf should be 82 or 83 US-made. Everything looks fine to me except for the radius. Pearl inlays are also unusual, I only remember them on E. Easton necks.

Those are not brush lines, after using a magnifying glass - it's the age-related finish cracking and it also looks correct. Definitely no refin either.
