I know that this place doesn't get much traffic anymore, but...worth a shot...

Don't know how to post pictures here, so:

http://www.seymourduncan.com/forum/showthread.php?319027-Fender-Esprit-MIJ-Master-Series-Which-Model&p=4077643

I had one of these years ago and I sold it...well...basically so I wouldn't have to live in a refrigerator box under a bridge. Anyway...I am a responsible adult now...yuck. Anyway having the means, and having found one of these fairly rare beasts...today...I've replaced it. This one is so much cleaner than mine was, the top is a lot nicer, and the color is too (the old one was cherry SB and very plain). So, mine was a Standard. This one looks the same, but it has a coil splitting switch. To boil it down...same body, tuners, and inlays as the Standard with the electronics of the Ultra. What model is that? I should be able to find it online, but...I'm probably just I-spazzing.

I have two others that are Squier Esprits. I think they're amazing once you swap the PUP's/electronics and hardware, and they're cheap! Not sure what I'll do with this one...just play it for a while I suppose. I have different amps now, so I'll see how these Schaller PUPs play with them. I have SD 59's in one and Ibanez Super 58's in the other, and they both have Tonepros hardware (one has Grovers the other Shaller locking tuners). The new MIJ guitar has all Schaller hardware, so before I try to put Tonepros or similar on there...like I said...just play for a while.

Haven't added a new guitar for about a year, so I am pretty excited. I may have to sell a few coming up because I just have too many, but it is sooooo hard to decide what to part with!
