Overall Rating:
I've played a variety of electrics including Gibson SG Custom, Univox Hi-Flyer, Kawai, and this is on par or better than any of them. I'd buy another just for the flexibility of the sound and ease of play.
Model Year: 1967
Price: $300.00
Where Obtained: individual
Features:
Hollowbody 1-piece laminated maple top and back, laminated maple sides and f-holes w/ Red Sunburst finish rosewood fingerboard, Gold/white/black/white plastic laminate pickguard; Fender steel bridge w/ vibrato tailpiece; Fender enclosed tuners; Dual Fender/DeArmond single coil pickups Tone and volume controls for each pickup w/ 3-way pickup selector switch
Playability:
Very playable for all types of music, easy action all through the fretboard. Feed back is a problem with effects pedals unless playing low volumes.
Sound Quality:
Fender Dual Reverb amp with Crybaby is a good combo for this model. DOD Overdrive Plus pedal is a surefire feedback problem. The variety of sounds with the DeArmond pickups is pretty good.
Durability:
It has been relatively trouble free for about 25 years that I've owned it. The playing has varied from very heavy early on to a few hours a week now. As long as fresh strings are maintained she is a solid performer.
