This USA model has been out of production for a while now and has became very desirable on the used market because of the cool and unique features it offers. It is a very versatile guitar. It will do everything from classic Strat blues tone to thicker Les Paul style sounds. Great for the player who needs a lot of different sounds from one instrument. It features Texas Special pickups in the middle and neck position and a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbucker in the bridge position. This example also features an Ash body which was a $150 upgrade at the time. Shows a few teeny dings and minor play wear. Includes original Fender hard shell case.
