FCS posted this one on Facebook this morning. The La Florita was originally a 2005 one-off, Chris Flemming Masterbuild with all the artwork by Blues guitarist Kid Ramos. It features a light ash body, vintage hdwr and Custom Shop 50's pickups. The matching amp is a Blues Jr.

Note: Special thanx to Pauline France at Fender for help with specs and pics!

"REGARDLESS!" This is hot July Friday feature!

Artist Kid Ramos is an interesting cat and a great guitarist who has worked in Roomful of Blues, Fabulous Thunderbirds and other bands. He was born in Fullerton, CA, also the birthplace of Fender Guitars-- to parents who were both opera singers. Cool huh! Below is a clip with the Thunderbirds:

Notice Kid's Esquire/Humbucker config; a precursor to Fender's La Cabronita model.
