Does anyone know the history of these? I have had one for quite a while, but I bought it used. It concerns me that it is the only one I have ever seen, because replacing it would be difficult. I have seen several of the same deluxe model with fretted necks, but never another fretless. I believe that it is a factory neck, it is unlined, and has all of the original Fender MIJ markings and serial # on the head stock. I added EMG P-J pups and replaced the OEM preamp and controls with 18v EMG electronics which was a big improvement over the fender stuff. I love it dearly, and would be quite sad if anything ever happened to it. I have never beeen able to find out anything about Fender Japan production, things like how many were made, and what years they were made. I really consider the Lyte as a largely undiscovered jewel. (although I have seen pictures of some pretty notable players with one). Any additional info about them would be greatly appreciated.
