Here for sale us a Fender Cyclone 2000 Black with Red Tortoise Shell Pickguard electric guitar. This is the rare and sought after Fender Cyclone. It features a Fender Zebra Atomic Pick up in the bridge which sounds awesome and a Tex Mex single coil in the neck which are killer. This mustang is up there on coolness, sound and build quality of the Kurt Cobain Fender Mustangs with a great look and upgrades over the Mustang. It has an amazing and unique neck for Fenders based on the Gibson Les Paul 24.75 scale length and really does feel like playing a Gibson in a Fender body. The neck is Roswd on maple. It is an unusual intermediate size for Fender and great size that has a whole other different feel to other Fenders and is the missing link in the Fender catalogue they really should bring back. The body is like a Fender Mustang body on steroids it is a quarter of an inch thicker than a mustang and just feels more substantial and powerful. The wood on the body is poplar and nicer quality instead of the usual mustang basswood .
It also features a Jazzmaster style headstock similar to a ’70’s strat with it’s cool little cyclone playing an off set guitar logo, so cool! It has vintage tuning heads, vintage string saddles as found on ’50’s strats. It has a nice Stratocaster style synchronized tremolo and a Gibson style three way selector switch in a great place you don’t knock when playing
The guitar is in great condition and the red tortoise pickguard on black with the zebra pick up is stunning. There is the odd bit of play wear and the odd scratches here or there that are pretty faint above the pick guard and on the lower bout but they are not very noticeable and just give the guitar more rock n roll character so you can relax and enjoy playing. The guitar also comes with a little bit of Fender case candy all wrapped up in a Fender Gig Bag. A great example of the Cyclone, a perfect storm of a guitar.
