I've had this for at least 10 years now (probably more), and it's the nicest, best playing, best sounding guitar I've ever heard in my life. I know it's low end, but if someone were to trade me ANY high ender for it, I would say no.
It's old as hell, and honestly sounds like a strat on the neck, and like hell unleashed on the bridge. Might be because it's old, might be my ear, but anyhow.
Serial number is 8906137, I think it's an EX. The original bridge and tuners were black, I replaced them with paper route money (I'm 28, mind you) when I was about 14-15. Note that the body is rounded, not sharpened angles like a 550/etc.
I'd love to get any background on it if I can, and additionally if anyone has one of these exact guitars in MINT condition, I'm willing to pay $1000 plus shipping to Massachusetts for it - but it HAS to have 100% _original_ hardare, pickups, pots, knobs (etc) on it.
Translated: You might find one in a music store for $150, so take a peek next time you're there and make some cash.
