NICE! It's like a sibling for that 83 trans red Imp Jessica Rabbit guitar I just scored.

Earlier this year, there was a guitar that looked EXACTLY like that on Craigslist for dirt cheap, but in super remote northern Wisconsin or Minnesota somewhere - not sure, I just remember it was in the middle of nowhere and many hours from an airport. I kept trying to figure out logistics of how to go get it, since often I can fly for free, but then after a while the listing came down. I wonder if the same guitar has come into your hands somehow. I distinctly remember that joint down the middle of the body with light wood on one side and darker on the other.

There was another one like that last year on CL in Atlanta, and logistics would have been easy since my guitar-player friend was in the same area, but at the time I didn't 't have the extra cash to spend.

Anyway, that's a nice score! I agree, the old Specials look badass with the single pickup.
SO many projects, so little time!

Practice cures most tone issues.

Sounds like you are unhappy with it & need to send it to me. :mrgreen
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.
