This guitar rocks my old MIA Strat Plus Deluxe into the floor...
Ash body, Honey/Amber clear finish, malpe neck. Fender, non-locking whang bar. In Tribute gig bag.
The S500 is a super strat. Standard 5 way switching plus an aditional switch to engage the brideg pickup so you van get all three pup's at the same time or the neck & bridge. Very cool!
Knob controls are Volume, Treble cut, Bass cut. Also very cool. Lot's of tone options.
In 9.9 out of 10 condition with very low hours. Been sitting along time so the pots were scratchy. I cleaned the tone pots and replaced the vol pot with a CTS full sized. link to the description of the current S500
Only real difference is the switch as a micro or as a pull pot.
