This guitar is actually Blue/Purple which is hard to capture in the pictures. It looks more blue than it actually is...
7 lbs. 10 oz.
These are the 9 guitars from the Joe Schneider, Hollywood FL collection. The collection itself is featured in this 1997 Vintage Guitar magazine article. http://www.vintageguitar.com/1834/fender-aluminum/
They are all for sale now...
All guitars in pristine unused condition.
However, with that in mind this is a disclaimer by Fender Custom Shop on the original warranty card which reads:
"This product is made from aluminum utilizing a special manufacturing process. Depending on the model that you have chosen, it has been finished using either chrome, gold, or black plating or a special hard anodizing process. Minor surface flaws, not found on our wood bodied products, are a normal result of these processes. While we have done everything possible to minimize the effects of these processes, slight flaws may be evident."
