This is a nice 1980 Fender Lead I that's been re-finished a killer surf green color. Not a bad refin. Looks very nice. First thing you notice when you pick this up is it has some heft for such a small compact body. The one-piece neck on this really feels good in your hands. Frets are still in good shape with some even wear. The stock Seth Lover humbucker sounds great. One 3-way switch lets you select each coil or both. The second two-way runs the coils in series or parallel when both coils are selected. Read the specs below. These are quality guitars. No dings or dents (one tiny mark in pics). Checking on headstock and some showing under the new paint. I just set this up with new strings and set intonation. It's ready to play and enjoy. No case. I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking.
