The broken in, vintage feel of this instrument is impossible to replicate. The Soft V neck carve fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, and remains comfortable all the way to the highest fret. Wide chord shapes and long stretches are effortless, and the notes resonate with an endless sustain. All of these characteristics make the guitar incredibly easy to bond with and a blast to play. The pickups produce a lively, clear chime that Fender is known for, and the bridge pickup has been replaced with a Hot Rails style "humbucker" for that added saturation and heavier rock tones.
Apart from typical wear, this guitar is in very good condition. Playwear includes nicks and small chips throughout the body, particularly the lower bout, and a fairly even wear pattern on the edges of the fingerboard. Over years of being supported by a guitar stand, indentations / marks have been left on the very bottom part of the instrument (see photos). The hardware and electronics all function flawlessly. Comes with Fender hardshell case.
