    Are the "vintage style" frets the really skinny ones?

    Love the looks and that's a great price. They are normally $699 or something (I'm talking actual price, not msrp.)

    I had a '57 reissue that had them tiny vintage frets, which is why I asked. I just could never bond with 'em, wound up selling it and getting a '62 thin skin reissue that came with bigger frets.

    I think those were made in Japan; they were a limited run for last year if I'm remembering correctly.

    I have one. Yes they are MIM. The frets are bigger that the ones on my MIM 50's esquire. I don't think they are vintage despite what the description says.

    I played one at GC recently and it was made in Mexico. I called GC before I went, though, and the guy on the phone told me they were MIJ. To be honest, I think when I asked my question he just put me on hold, examined his fingernails and whistled a tune for a minute or two, then picked up the phone and said, "Dude? Those are, like, made in Japan."

    I had one a little while back and I thought it was a good guitar. At $399 it's priced pretty good for what it is. Fit, finish, and playability of mine were pretty nice. I remember it having a fairly beefy neck.

    Thanks for setting me straight; for some reason I was thinking those were CIJ. Maybe I was thinking of that run of lefty 68-style Strats they did a year or two ago - those might have been CIJ or MIK. It's hard to keep track of all these FSR/Short Run models.:messedup
