I'll be damned. As some members know, I was an avid collector of the 'newer' style Imperials. I can't remember seeing that particular model. If I did, I probably would have owned one.

Love the color, it’s close to my Grabber Blue Mustang.
Why did you replace the pickups and what did you go with?
It be sure looks pretty, I recommend a nice maple board for your next one! :toast

I believe that type of imperial with the slant pickup was only around 87-88 time frame? I put sh-6’s in it.

I think I’ve found a new hobby. I’ve restored several cars and this is so much less expensive!

I believe these were actually a one year only deal. I have only seen a few and 1986 is the most likely year.

There is another on Reverb right now.
