This was a limited 2005 NAMM show special, only 24(?) made. At first glance the STV looks like a G6119-SP Tennessee Special with only a single pickup. In actuality it has more in common with the G6116-PTV Power Tenny and the 6119-1959 with '59 trestle bracing and a PowerTron pickup. Unlike these guitars, it has no zero fret. Although some advertisements claimed otherwise, this guitar does NOT have a pinned bridge.
