    Default Fender Santa Rosa

    I knew a dude a while back that had one, nice looking axe. Anyone here know anything about them and the availability of them?

    Yes, you don't see them around very often. There was one for sale on Aussie eBay a month ago - didn't sell.

    I happen to own one...

    I knew, I knew it, he shouldn't have asked :D :D
    It is pretty cool though to have our own down under Fender museum.

    That looks like a pretty cool guitar, wonder if it sounds better than the stratacoustic.

    Actually it's not a bad sounding guitar. I understand that Chris Isaak may have used one at one stage on one of his songs.

    What you might not see from the photos is that it is a solid body guitar, the "sound hole" is only about 3/8" deep. It has a piezo bridge pickup. Not very loud acoustically.

    The only other one I've seen was a sunburst, the guitar player in Tammy Wynettes last band had it.
