This is the fourth FBI Cruzcaster. Does that make them common? I don’t think so. How many guys have you seen playing one? If a friend of yours bought one of the four, you will have seen one but it’s not likely. On the other hand, how many sunburst or black Telecasters have you seen? Lot’s. So, this shows me that people like the “lawman” FBI look. Arlen sure did. We talked and he said he liked the FBI pick guard, with a body colour of #030 but more beat up, lots of relic treatment on the control plate and some shotgun shell knobs. Arlen didn’t want too much “Tele twang”. He wanted something thicker, warmer and smoother. Well, he got it with a nice P90 in the neck and a balanced single coil in the bridge. Who knows, there could be an FBI Cruzcaster coming to a town near you.
