I just traded my MIM Classic Series 50's Tele plus a C-note for this 2008 USA S-500. It may be 11 years old but it's in really excellent shape. I finally got a couple of G&Ls last year and I suppose now I've become a little obsessed. I can't believe I used to overlook them because of the ugly headstocks. This one has a mahogany body in "Old School" tobacco sunburst. They offer a Tribute S-500 in mahogany as well, I'd love to compare them.
