Built to EC’s specifications, the signature model is based on a ’57 Reissue with a solid alder body with a 6 screw vintage tremolo bridge, single ply pickguard, 5 way blade switch.
This one is from 1989, the first year of this model’s production. It features a great sounding set of Fender’s Lace Sensor pickups. The TBX and active 25db boost offer a great deal of versatility with sounds to suit a wide range of styles.
Solid maple neck
Fender Vintage Lace Sensor pickups

This early EC Blackie is in excellent condition. There is some light wear on the pick guard & some faint marks on the back. Top is extremely clean – no dents or dings. The neck is pristine – no issues & almost no fret wear. Action is set slinky low with 10-46 strings.
This is a super versatile guitar with plenty of tonal and volume options. It can sound like a classic vintage Strat, albeit with no pickup buzz or grounding issues. Or wind up the active mid-boot and TBX controls and it will move from smooth overdrive to snarling beast at your discretion.
Comes in original Fender tweed case in good condition.
