    Nice guitar; if you email Fender the serial number they might know how many were made. Contact them at consumerrelations@fender.com.

    For the limited runs they could be as little as 25 or as many as 250 - it just depends.

    Mahogany is an open pore wood.

    In order to have no pinholes, you've got to coat the devil out of it. IMO it sort of defeats the theme of the guitar, even if "sonically" it made basically no difference. Ergo, no showy solid colors like LPB.

    She's a beauty! I'd love to have the same thing, but with 2xWRHBs.

    I have one. Great guitar. Fender claimed only 250 were to be made worldwide.

    Isn't Limited Run totally different than FSR, in that Limited is much lower quantiities and rarer?

    Well it was new when the American Elites came out in 2016 - it's only used on the Thinline. It's a top-loader bridge held in place by string tension; it slots into a hole in the top of the body.
