I'll swap in a fine-tuner Floyd during its tenure with me... been looking for one for a while now.

From my experience these are lighter bodies, probably alder, and R2 shallow C necks...

I think they're definitely cool AF... but I'll alway be a Baretta guy, and aside from the nut width the headstocks are so similar.

They also were a lot more plentiful a couple decades ago, though I haven't seen many around. There's the bastardized one at JonnyAXN which should be a crime. Then there's the guy in YouTube in Argentina who has one in CA red that's smokin' HOT... This is the first one I've seen for sale in about 2 years that hasn't been butchered.

Also you see these mostly with 45 degree tab Gotohs, and this has the 90's just like the Baretta which is also cool...

The funny thing is there's pic of it when it was original, and he was trying to sell it for like $3200, then he mangles it and wants $200 more for the negligence LOLOL

I actually offered the seller $120 less than asking, he then counteroffered my offer by $30 and I couldn't hit the buy it now button any faster...
