    When I saw this for $275.00 at my local music consignment shop I knew it was coming home with me. All I was told is that it's a Mighty Mite neck and that the original owner/builder "knew what he was doing".
    The neck is beefy, almost Baja size, but the thing that sold me was the fretwork is better than any Fender I've played recently. Every fret is dressed and beveled perfectly on the ends.
    I was happy to find a CTS pots harness with an orange drop cap. Fender tuners and Fender bridge.
    From what I can tell the body is MIM as are the pickups. They don't sound bad, but I have a set of Fralins I've had in the parts bin aching for a new home. I think this will work nicely. 20201202_155730.jpg

    That color combo is nice, don't change the PG! Okay, change it to suit you but it looks pretty good as is..
