Unusual factory features

This one has a slight deviation in serial number nomenclature-- it's a 2006 model but is missing the leading zero (0) on the serial number sequence. Also, the "pearlized inlay dots" on the bridge are noticeably smaller than the ones on the 2007 models.

This was the last of the Americana series for me to acquire-- I bought it on Ebay in 2009 for about $70, finally completing my collection. Apparently, the "Wild West Sweethearts" model is the most difficult to find-- either because they were more popular or perhaps there were fewer made... I'm not really sure.
