    Found an almost new American Performer body on ebay a few weeks ago, took the plunge and paired it with a brand new roasted maple vintera V profile neck... my new Halfacaster. Both halves are superb but the whole is greater than the sum of the parts (or whatever the saying is). The Vintera neck feels beautiful and the yosemite pickups sound great too. Finally got my forever tele.

    That is just beautiful, man. That roasted maple neck just sets the whole guitar off.

    The guitar looks right, but the body is really throwing me off.

    The SS Performer only came in Honeyburst, Vintage White and Sonic Blue.

    Was it a special run body color?

    It almost looks like a Classic Vibe body, which would be a nice way to get a Pinecaster!
