I have never heard of these before. Very unique guitar! It is very simplistic, with one pickup and one volume knob. It also have an arch top and a set neck. I really like the celtic design at the 12th fret! Made in Korea. It is $400 in perfect condition. What do you think?

That's a new one to me too Ben!
I like the inlays. I did a little digging about it and found it was originally sold as a 'Fender Esquire Celtic Custom'.
Specs are:
Fender Showmaster.
Neck Thru Body design.
String Thru Body.
Fender Atomic II H/Bucker.

I found an ad from 2006 asking for $400 2nd hand so that sounds about the right price!!!
Apparently they did a Electro-acoustic with the same silver finish and inlays!!!

Part of me feels the same way! It certainly is unique though! I like it because I have never seen one before.
