The ultimate all in one guitar! The Super 58 pickups sound completely, totally out of this world! No joke, they're like sonically perfect PAF's; and we're talking passive! Add the ability to split each one to a single coil, or put it out of phase, and you've just moved into a new spectrum. NOW add the onboard EQ, and you can sound like anything you want. Very handy for finding a pedalboard's sweet spot on the fly. Crank the mids and drive a tube amp. Scoop the mids and you're in Telecaster land. Top grade wood not found on earth anymore. Top quality hardware and build that nearly put the American guitar companies out of business at the time. Add to that the hard to find, deluxe "Brass Beauties" package of the time, and you have a sweet collector's item to make you the envy of any guit player out there. Knobs, switch tip and truss rod cover are all brass. A couple of minor dings on the front, typical signs of wear on the back, typical gold plating wear and one missing screw that holds on the circuit board (not necessary for the guitar to function and easily obtainable). That's it. Guitar works perfectly. Have fun!
