I chose this guitar because it was so good to play and it was a bargain price at the time
Model Year: 1976
Price: $600.00 AUD
Where Obtained: ?? in 1984
Made in U.S.
Maple Neck, Alder Body
2 X Humbucker Pickups
This guitar plays like a typical strat. It has a very fast low action. The long scale neck I find is easier to play.
I play all styles and use a Behringer Vamp 2 through a Vox AC30TBX.
The guitar sounds more like a Les Paul than a telecaster.
Have used this guitar live for about 25 years with no problems at all. It has been dropped off stage, fallen on, knocked off stands, crashed into mike stands and survives everything.
This axe sat on the shelf for a bit
i don't know why other customers passed this one by
my ony guess is it not the style most people want or can afford!
