Oh no, I got the previous Frerttech special offering in green from the classifieds here. Came loaded with the Tiger Strat pickups, 50's style except for the bridge which was the SRV, and a blender pot. Brilliant guitar. I've got expensive guitars too, but I forget about fancy wood and all that when playing this thing. Yeah, the neck could perhaps be a little beefier, but that's another thing I forget about once I play it.
