Not a lot of info to be found I believe they only slotted 2000 of these to be built which means there might be less

I have one with Rio Grandes in it. Sweet guitar. Needs a setup, but I haven't had the time lately. Pics to come later, when I give it that setup!

I have one too. Mine is a 2006 Mexican with a Fender 60th anniversary logo stamped into a small metal plate on the back of the headstock!!
I love this guitar. It sounds great, it looks great and it feels great!!!

The moment I walked into the music loft in Wilmington, NC, and saw mine 10 years ago I knew I had to have it. After some negotiating with the store owner, I carried it home and swapped the pickups for some high output fralins!!! She now sounds as hot as she looks! I'm not crazy about the small frets, but hey it looks and sounds just as cool as you can get. I also bought an ashtray and put on it-bling bling.
