Is this one of the 24 fret Pacers that were never released? (I have THREE of them) Notice that the "shelf" that the bridge mounting screws are attached are just recessed a little bit – not nearly as much as the rest of the recess. I don't think I've seen that on any of the 22 fret models?


ive got another lefty with the barely recessed, floyd and regular beretta like cavity cover,with 2 singles and a slanted hum,with 1 vol and 3 toggels and it came with a 22 fret american neck bound only at the headstock.

I've never seen those "in the wild", but I am sure you are right, because I just found a photo of one of mine, and it obviously isn't the same body type:

Notice the lack of room between the neck pup and neck pocket.

No longer looking for a late-era Baretta I body (with double scooped lower horn).

Two of these popped up on eBay. Made an offer on the blue one and it sold. Made an offer on this one and got it. KramerRoy saw it and says it looks like the bodies that came out of Neptune in the late 80s. It would not bother me if it was a Focus 6000 body but I would like the experts opinions here.
