Here is the limited edition 2011 Japanese Morris Moridiera 45th anniversary reissue of H.S Anderson’s legendary Madcat Telecaster. It's the only genuine H.S. Anderson Madcat we can see for sale right now. What's more this is a super-rare left handed model. It was one of only two we managed to secure from a collector recently. The frost one sold almost immediately. This is the second and last. For those unaware, this was the guitar made famous by Prince. Only around 500 were built back in the 70’s (the very first handful ever built had no serial numbers, these are like gold-dust). Anyway a few were sent over to the U.S. and re-branded under Hohner. A young Prince found one of these rare guitars in his early days (some say in a Gas Station - we like the irony) and it stayed with him throughout his career, he recorded Purple Rain and many other albums with his Madcat. These 45th anniversary reissues were only a limited run, and we don’t often find them for sale; this is one of only 2 (see above) we have ever come across. They were built around 2011. They are amazing guitars in their own right, and were built in the same Moridiera plant in Japan where the original 70’s Mad-Cats were born. Chances are you are never going to see the 'Holy Grail' grail: A non-serial 1970's original. So for us mere mortals- this is as good as it gets. It’s the real deal, and very rare in it's own right. A really high-end boutique looking and feeling Tele with a thick chunky neck, bound and flamed maple top and back over ash with a walnut centre. It has a thick chunky C profile maple neck with 21 frets, a 9.5 radius and a skunk stripe on the back.  Another really cool feature on these 45th anniversary models is the leopard-print binding. On all other models it is black. Weight of this beauty is a solid 4.1kg. It’s voiced by great sounding USA Bill Lawrence T1 & T2 pickups with 3 way switching. It is in beautiful condition with no visible blemishes at all. It is in shop floor condition(!) It’s been very well cared for. It’s obviously had absolutely no breaks, repairs or mods. Neck is dead straight, plenty of life in the frets, truss rod fine. It comes with a SKB hard/soft hybrid case, also in as new condition.
