2006. This model is only manufactured by Fender Japan and it is very rare to see these guitars in Europe or America. Apart from its beauty, which is obvious, the most important feature of this guitar is the variety of sounds offered by its particular combination of pickups. 9.5" fingerboard radius. To further enhance this versatility I added a Fishman piezo for acoustic guitar sounds. An all-terrain for playing live. It is also very light, so there is no problem in playing for a long time. I replaced the original pickups by: Lollar Imperial on the neck, Tom Anderson TF-1 in the center and Tom Anderson TF-3 on the bridge. The locking pins (of course!) Sperzel.
