I wasn't really looking for one of these, but my local dealer had two; one of which was a discounted floor demo that was near mint. Since I picked up a Rickenbacker 4003 Noir almost two weeks ago, I couldn't resist Fender's similar offering. Got it home and put my last set of Fender 9050CL flats on it and gave it a set up. First impressions is that it sounds like a Fender P! Seriously, tho, it's a very nice instrument. Not flawless, but for what I paid it was definitely worth picking up.
