An absolute unit of a guitar, this beast is the darkhorse of 70's fenders and absolutely crushes gibson tones from this era. The widerange humbuckers have to be used with caution otherwise a volcano might erupt. If you've ever wanted to stand out on stage or be inspired by a new type of guitars, this piece is for you. Its a polyamorous marriage between a strat tele and gibson. You're looking at a piece that has seen a ton of stages and studios, with the comsetic wear to show it, but its internals are all intact and its a "player grade" vintage instrument. The piece is 100% original with the original case and its neck has practically morphed to the human hand from playing. Its a win win because your buying your new favorite guitar and a great investment at the same time! The juxtapostion of Old wood and years of playing have made this piece completely resonant and chaotic. You can play this clean or dirty and your getting the most sonically pleasant mid range tones you'll ever hear. This piece has been fully setup with polished frets to allow you to "glide" over the fretboard. Action and intonation is dead on and neck relief is perfect. The neck has absolutely no warps or humps and the truss rod turns perfectly with tons of room to turn for seasonal changes.  Thank you for looking

Condition: Great shape for its age, original finish does exhbit wear and tear, dings and scratches scattered all over body and back clearly pictured. There are a handful of chips along the edges of the body that expose wood. There has been a paint touchup on the backside where the belly cut is. However none of the cosmetic issues affect any structural integrity or playability and still looks gorgeous. There is a good amount of scratching on the back left side on the body and a couple dings on the back of the neck, but the neck still feels smooth and lacquery. The fretboard and headstock are preserved without any cosmetic issues and the frets have plenty of life. The headstock has aged faster than the neck because of they sprayed the headstock face with nitro because poly didnt react well with the decals.

All original pickups and pots that date to the 11th week of 1975, Pickups are very distinct and sweet, bridge pickup is a force to reckon with.
