Squier by Fender Stratocaster 20th Anniversary model  3TS

MIC 2002 & New Hard Case


Mostly when old Squiers come into the workshop they end up being stripped down for parts as they aren't working, the frets are worn, warped necks etc etc. This guitar wasn't working when it came in but it was an electrical fault and had a cracked single ply scratchplate. This is a common problem. I had a nice new black 3 ply scratchplate & some pickup covers etc so I set about improving it to see how it would turn out. Well, here's the result. A really nice Stratocaster with a near perfect body & neck. It's a 20th Anniversary model with the stamped neck plate. As a starter guitar or a back up, it really is a nice player. The pickups could also easily be upgraded too

I'm often asked if I have any lower priced guitars for sale so i always try and keep a couple in stock. This really is a very nice guitar. All set up with 10-46 gauge strings a new hard case & ready to go!

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. 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
