Here's the story...This is not an expensive guitar.  It caught my eye because I recognized the design from seeing Leo Fender's original drawings.  I looked it over and noticed that it has some flame on the top and back, and two little darker birdseye marks in the wood one of the top one on the back.  I also was interested to see that it had both a traditional single coil Strat pickup in he neck position, and a hot humbucking pickup in the bridge position.

I took it down and played it and bought it on the spot.  This is a limited edition, no longer made.  It is in the very traditional tobacco sunburst with with pickguard.  It has six tone variations due to the two pickups and the push/pull coil selector on the master volume pot.  It has the following:

Basswood body -  C-shaped neck -   Maple fretboard  -  25 1/2' scale -  21 medium-jumbo frets - 1.650' nut width - Chrome hardware - Hardtail saddle bridge  - single ply pickguard - single coil neck pickup - humbucker bridge pickup

Great sounding for bules and funk type playing.  Both engaged gives it a fat, meaty tone, particularly good for rhythm playing.  You can also good a traditional Tele sound, and with the volume down a little, a smooth jazz sound.  This guitar could not be told from new, and will be packed and shipped with care.  It would insult the guitar to call it a beginner guitar, but it would certainly be an awesom
