    Back in ‘88 reading that the first EC Signature strata were coming out it mentioned that Fender would offer a with or without cigarette holder. They described it as a hole in the head stock on the the flat top up where the tuning pegs are and would have a little brass cup insert. EC was still a smoker then and would put his burning cigarette between the head stock and strings. I went to a local guitar store when they came out and they had one with and one without the cigarette holder. Since then I have never seen one with the holder. I’ve been interested in getting getting one but can’t find any. I looked the guitar up on Wikipedia and they make no mention of it. I know what I saw. Does anyone else know of this option. No one else seems to think this was a thing.

    Wow, I've never heard of nor seen one with that option. Good luck finding one. I would think you'd have an exceptionally rare instrument there.

    Get a drill. Make a hole. Jam a smoke into it! You’ll be all set!
    When I smoked mine went on the end of a protruding string that I purposely left a little long just for that purpose.
