I think the story is out on these by now.
But for the newly initiated, these are a hybrid American/Mexican guitars.

Fantastic quality, cool history, and with ones like these….. An absolute killer finish.
The Fiesta Red finish starts to turn a coral/salmon pink over time. Unfortunately in my pics it comes across as just a fiesta red…. Which is also super cool. But in person it’s not as bright, and a lot less red.

The one issue these are known for is the balance between the humbucker and the singles. The humbucker is quite a bit louder.
I had a Fat Tele for years and it was the same thing. Pretty easy fix.

The condition is pretty great. The main thing that stands out is part of the neck looks like it was exposed to sunlight over time and the other part wasn’t. Looks pretty cool to me.

Comes with a Gigbag. Tremolo arm included.
