...and just had to have it!
2007 Maverick Streetfighter Limited Edition. Only 4 of these in existence, and one is mine, bwahaha. One is being kept by Chris at GuitarZone, so there's two left.
I'm sure this will polarise opinion, but IMO this is the finest looking maple boarded superstrat I've ever seen. Loving the reverse headstock and that colour. Beats the pants off an RG550 in all departments IMO, with the possible exception of the trem. That said, although the Maverick trem looks like a Lo-TRS II, that's where the similarities end. It's actually very good.
2 piece select American Alder body
Canadian rock maple neck/fingerboard
Maverick "XTreme" high output humbuckers
Evolution Volume/Tone pots
Fireburst finish (ala F3)
The guitar also features Maverick's "fret vents", which are basically just holes going through the neck, instead of inlayed position markers. Serves no useful purpose, but it's uber cool to look at!
I'm a big fan of Mavericks, but i've been waiting for something as special as this for a long time. It's cool to know that's it's exclusive, what with only 4 of them having been made (at the request of Chris), but I reckon this spec would go down a storm if they put it in production.
I'd be interested to hear people's opinions.
