1980's Schecter Strategy Guitar MIJ & used Hard Case


  Here's a bit of an oddity. This Schecter guitar was built in Japan in the 1980's. Best described as a "Super Strat" with it's locking tremolo system & locked nut, bridge coil split humbucker & black hardwear it is typical of the design of many 1980s guitars from Japan. The guitar is actually being sold on behalf of my luthier. It had been hanging around in his workshop for so long he can't remember any of its history. Having said that, a google search revealed that there aren't many of these guitars around. This particular instrument plays well & the pickups, once again give you that classic 80's sound

This guitar is a classic old 80's strat from Japan. Made by Schecter, it's in pretty good condition for its age. There are some knocks and small dings which I have shown in the photo gallery but nothing serious. This is good value for a sub £300 guitar

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag
