I don't actually know which model it is. It simply says 6120 inside on the sticker. I bought this in 2003 but received the wrong card with serial number etc. in the case. The guitar serial no and the card don't match. It's one of the first of the Fender era. I changed nothing. Maybe someone can help identify things like, pickups, tuners, Bigsby etc. Thanks. :-) Great guitar!

Yours is a standard 6120/Nashville, but it’s a transitional model— evidenced by the FMIC (Fender-era) serial number, but with pre-FMIC features, such as wider headstock, pre-Fender body shape, tone knob with Filtertrons, and pre-FMIC ceramic-magnet Filtertron pickups. The FMIC transition took about 3 years total across the product line— with different models being re-vamped at different times during this period.

I’ve updated the info on your entry to more accurately reflect the model.
