    Very clean P-Elite in trans green over an ash body, maple neck, nice dark rosewood board. All original, even includes the original strap (needs restitching) and cord. The straps on the HSC that hold the top half open were torn years ago, like many of these.

    Single split coil pickup, active circuit with midrange boost (no passive bypass), fine tuning bridge (still has all four tuners), diecast Schaller tuning machines, Schaller straplocks.

    Bought new when Fender cleared out the Fullerton warehouse in the mid 80s. Despite being gigged for many years, it was babied. No chips in the finish anywhere! Light swirling on back does not show up in photos. Real "closet classic" condition. Frets still in great shape.

    The active circuit works as follows: From tone knob center detent to full CCW it operates much like the passive tone on a P. Advancing CW from the detent brings in a musical midrange boost somewhat similar to a Jazz or Rick type high end.

    Bathroom scale weight is 10 pounds.

    No trades!!!! No trades!!!! No trades!!!!

    USA only!!!! USA only!!!! USA only!!!!

    Located near Boston, MA and am willing to discount for local pickup. Otherwise, price is firm. Shipping is included in price.
