Wow man good find! i love finding fender guitars i have never seen before! Heres what they have to say " Co-designed by Courtney Love and the Fender Custom Shop, this fresh new design embodies unique features and delicious tone! Body: Solid basswood. Neck: Maple; 25.5" scale. Fretboard: Bound rosewood w/22 frets. Electronics: HB pickup (bridge), single coil pickup w/staggered Alnico pole pieces (neck), 3-pos toggle, master volume. Pickguard: White shell. Hardware: 6 saddle adjustable bridge with strings through body design, traditional machine heads, all nickel w/chrome plating. (Gig bag included, U.S. & Canada only). "
So i would imagine it wouldnt really sound any different then a strat made of basswood with only two pickups though i could be horrible wrong.; that string through might change everything. i am not a fan of courtney love at all so i probably wouldnt even be interested but if you find one, which seems like it will be difficult, but if you do post some samples of it! Now you got me interested! =) Have you researched them at all or was this just a one night stand (if you will 0=) )
