Used for the DIIV European tour 2015 before the release of DIIV's second album, 'Is The Is Are'. Cole here in the photo and the video uses a Black Fender Cyclone with a sticker in white with black text reading, "Grinning." Cole has continued to use this guitar both live and in the studio. As a result of touring and recording, the guitar has been adorned with new stickers, paint chips, and has had various volume and tone knobs over the years. The control plate is frequently held down by tape. Other sources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow8Qa_FdnL4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12K1AADAlVgmore
Out of all the guitars I've owned, and sold, this is the one I miss the most. I really wish I didn't have to sell it but I was in a very bad financial position and.... :( I had a yellow one, from 2002 I believe and a black one from 03. They were oddball Fenders in that they had a 24.75 neck (Gibson scale). But I absolutely loved the Atomic humbucker in the bridge and pairing it with the single coil in the neck. It was basically a bigger version of the Cobain Mustang with a strat bridge. I really want another one to replace what I lost. One day.
Bought this second hand as a compliment to my telecaster, due to its different pickup configuration and tremolo system. Its an amazing guitar that plays nicely and has a nice warm tone
