Just got this for free from a buddy of mine. Brand new, still in the box. I'm pretty sure it's an '09? Plays like a dream straight from the factory. The neck is incredibly nice. I'll be putting a cream pearloid pickguard on it ASAP. Merry Christmas to me!

Doesn't the 8 after the MZ means it's an '08?

Does this buddy want more friends to give free guitars too? If so have him hit me up and I'll buy him a frozen yogurt or something. :P Man my strat gas just went up, I always am tempted to pick up a cheap one on Craigslist. HNFGD!

Eh, according to The Guitar Dater Project site, it's made in either '08 or '09. I think the first number of the serial number means it was either made that year, or the following year. It's not that big of a deal though.

Damn, the only bits of guitar related stuff I've ever gotten for free were like, patch chords and stuff.

If it were an '08 or '09, wouldn't the Fender logo be silver outlined in black?

And happy new free guitar day, I wish I had your luck

It sounds pretty sweet. Neck pickup is smooth and creamy. The bridge pickup is a little too harsh but when you split the middle and bridge, that sounds really nice.

For those of you who think getting this for free is crazy..didn't Jimmy Page get his #1 Les Paul for free from Joe Walsh? That things worth over like 2 million now!

And I'm not sure about the '08/'09 logo. I have an '04 Telecaster that has the silver logo outlined in black. This one is black outlined in silver. EDIT: It might actually be outlined in gold..it's hard to tell cause I don't have any really bright lights in my room =/

A Used pick? All I've ever gotten for free was lame advice. And, that was to buy new equipment!

While driving yesterday, I saw a banana peel on the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

Wow. I wish I had friends like that. Love the maple fretboard. My friends got the same model down to the color and everything. Mexican Fenders continue to prove themselves superior to epiphones.

Can we all just agree that Fender Mexico is the shit for the price?

Wow free!!! Thats awesome. It's either a late 08 or and 09 as it has the 09 logo and upgrades. They are sweet guitars, especially with some mods. I own a Strat and a Tele and love em both.

Those look awesome. I love how even the strap is the same.

I just got these two basses for free online the other day. Ones a full scale, the other short scale. The full scale one I already converted to a lefty bass, the short scale I have to wait till I can afford some short scale strings for it. Both were screwed electronics-wise but nothing a couple of extra pots laying around, input jacks and some soldering wouldn't fix up.

Black on red? Nahhhh. I have a black guard on my sunburst tele though; that looks sick. Gotta go cream pearloid on this one.
