The first 250 or so Masqueraders made (ie before Summer of '76) featured re-badged Hayman Necks with the more ornate curvy headstock outline and decorative rebates on the sides. Also usually featuring a hole where the Hayman logo was to have been fitted!

The body of this guitar also contains a 'Vibrosonic Chamber', an untuned sprung wooden box embedded behind the bridge, intended to add a springy sustaining reverberation to the guitar's resonance! This is another indication of an early Masquerader made utilising a repurposed (or 'Masquerading') Hayman body.
