Woohoo!

Scored a 2022 Custom Shop at a great price. Agonized over it for the better part of the week, then figured "Sooner or later, I'll buy one, this is a great price, and my wife will get over it"
Arrived this morning... it's been hotter than blazes last couple of weeks and the case was really warm when I pulled it out of the box, so I let it rest for a couple of hours to cool down.

Specs are 9.5" radius, Dual-Mag pickups (bass side is Alnico-5, treble is Alnico-2 bevel)
Bridge is vintage style, and surprisingly, the Custom Shop uses "Fender/Pat.Pend" saddles, rather than "Fender/Fender".
Super light... I haven't weighed it yet, but it's lighter than my '17 American Special.
Setup is great and it plays very nicely!

Ooh just great!
I am not a huge fan of burst but this is clearly a superb instrument. Congrats for this perfect move.
Which frets are on it?
