    If you are asking me mine is a 1997 Fender Am. Deluxe with Suhr electronics.

    I completely modded my 2001 MIM Fender Deluxe. with Suhr era
    "type electronics". It required shielding by my luthier to quiet it down.

    Thanks guys, picked it up and it is a gem. Neck is wonderful, tuners are tight, frets are great and have been dressed recently, action is spot on, and it plays super nice!
    The pearloid guard has some greening going on that looks really cool, comes with extra high mass bridge and all the case candy with original Fender gig bag. I'd say I did pretty well on this for the price. I've been playing it for about an hour and I'm really digging it so far.

    Did yours have the new-fangled (at that time) ultra light tuners, and if so did you notice any play in them? Mine had play in every one. It took me forever to get that bass in tune. It's the only bass I ever owned that had any issues like that. I'm wondering too if they only released a small amount of basses with them.

    Happy for you! It looks awesome, and if it feels/plays the same - I'm almost jealous :). Congrats!

    I got a smoking deal from a local shop on a new Fender Rumble 150 they had NOS in the shop, $149 lol. MSRP is $349 and it seems street price new was $249-299. It sounds great and has wheels which is nice.
    So far its the best Christmas gift I've ever bought myself.

    Are you in the RVA area, by any chance? I just saw that exact deal on craigslist and searched this forum to see if it was a well-regarded amp, ha.
