AMERICAN VINTAGE 1958 PICKUPS

Their superior sound and style is one of the defining hallmarks of this Limited Edition guitar.
THREE COOL VINTAGE COLORS

MODERN NECK AND FINGERBOARD
This Limited Edition instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile and a smooth satin-finish back. The fingerboard features a modern 9.5” radius, comfortably rolled edges for instantly “broken in” feel and medium jumbo frets.
