I notice that the maverick has split staggered half pickups. If you want a modern version of this consider the G&L Comanche which has  3 "Z"-pickups, which are 3 split half pickups. Leo Fender used the split half pcikups in this, his last design, and in the version I have you can switch on any combination of half pickup, including only one half of one.
This is the Comanche 6 as opposed to the Comanche 5 which has a strat blade switch and a miniswitch.

I have the 6 and my son has the 5.

These guitars are very unique in the sound you can get and when you roll off the tone controls you get a really thick sound, not just a muffled bass sound.

The 6 is no longer made because G&L thought that musicians found them too hard to figure out.
But that doesnt stop us, the holders of Jags where switches abound.
A  man studies and learns all of his  life, and  attains wisdom only when he finds that  he knows much and understands nothing.

Have you got a pic you could post?  Sounds a bit high for a refin.

Agreed.  I would think a refin should be more like $1500-2000 tops.

You can ignore the post in the xii thread.
Is it labled as a "Custom" or a "Maverick"?  I've got pics of a white refin somewhere, I'll try to find and post.

I've always liked the upper horn of these, but the back edge just doesn't do it for me. Any photoshoppers out there care to do a mock up of a Custom body with the back edge being rounded like a JM? I'm guessing it would look like a Jazzmaster body with the more boxy top horn but it's hard for me to visualize.

Name your flavor. May take a bit if you want other than tort guard with black pups.
