Rather rare version of the early Fender Prototypes by Nacho Banos. Sandwich body is actually Swamp Ash... and the guitar weighs 5lb 15oz. Great V neck profile and very realistic neck wear that even the big "F" can't seem to get right! these days! The story goes that Leo painted a bunch of the Prototypes Gold and showed them to Les Paul (because LP liked Gold guitars!) ... hoping for an endorsement deal. So this rockin' guitar is gold. Re-fretted w slightly higher Jescar wire by Shyboy - think "narrow/tall". "F" decal-ed with a very accurate Telecaster decal that is over the finish and could easily be removed. Includes the VERY expensive 4 Volume "Pinecaster" Nacho Book in mint condition with the box. Might consider a partial trade to facilitate a deal. Shipping included if you need it. Dropped $500 to $7995. Thanks for looking! [email protected] for EMTs.
