Complete with goofy, "hockey-stick" headstock and Jag-ish body shape (unlock the previous re-issue of a few years back).

OK, they come with only a gig bag, the fretboard is Pao Ferro instead of Rosewood and they're MIM but, overall, this re-issue is still closer to the original than the earlier one was.

Back during the late 1960s, I spent a day noodling on one of the originals that belonged to somebody in a house where I was staying for a couple days. Since then, I've vaguely lusted for one from time to time, but the prices on the occasional vintage piece I'd come across were always exorbitant.

This one comes too late for me, as I've pretty much forsaken guitars in favor of bass playing these days, but maybe someone else here has also harbored an unrequited love for these over the years and will be interested.

I had to do a setup on a vintage one once.

I have never wanted one since.
