I'm seriously thinking of picking this guitar up next month when Long and Mcquade has their "Fender" month. I've played one and it sounded fabulous. Of course I was playing it through a vintage 65 Deluxe reverb. The one thing that just bothers me more than it probably should. Why the hell did he have to go and put that cowboy hat on the headstock. Maybe others think its cool but I think its about the stupidest thing Fender could have done.
