MODERN “D” NECK
Slim with wide shoulders, the “Modern D” neck profile works for any style of playing. Ultra rolled fingerboard edges and a silky, smooth Ultra satin finish make the neck effortless to play.
Built for speed and easy bending, the 10”-14” compound-radius fingerboard is rounded near the nut for chording ease, becoming increasingly flatter as it nears the upper register for easy soloing.
ENHANCED BODY CONTOURS
The tapered neck heel allows unparalleled access to the upper registers of the fingerboard, while the sculpted rear body contour is designed for comfort.
ULTRA NOISELESS VINTAGE PICKUPS
The Ultra Noiseless™ Vintage pickups feature true classic Fender tone without hum.
The volume knob’s S-1 switch selects between series or parallel wiring for added tonal range, while the treble bleed circuit maintains your highs at any volume.

This guitar went from the factory to their authorized refurbisher, where it received a full multi-point inspection and expert setup – it is ready to play! No visible repairs were necessary, and no modifications were made except the back of the headstock was stamped USED and the original serial number was replaced with a new one. I acquired this guitar from the refurbisher, and there has been no other owner. This LIKE NEW guitar has not been played except for setup and testing.
Check-out the videos on YouTube and more information on the company website. This is a Great guitar at a Great Price!
