I always liked those.





I used to want one like "Micawber". Maybe I will do that some day.When I got my El Degas tele,
I was trying to remember what artist had a stratocaster switch tip on their tele.Then I found this photo.

Thanks! These are really a bargain,Guitar Center sells them for $499 and sometimes you can get them for $399 with a $100 rebate from Fender.

I remembered I played one at my local music store mexican made? it sounded amazing but since it was never set up and had super old strings and the neck felt quite sticky for my tastes, but still it was a real nice guitar was going to get it. Retailed for $1299 nzd but could of got it for $999 or just under a grand lol but I ended up getting a mustang, and tbh I ended up hating it LOL and went back to playing my other tele, so I might have to go back the the local music store and pick it up when I have the $$$ and give it a nice set up. (as its still there Razz)
