2021 Fender Japan Hybrid II Stratocaster in Forest Blue & new hard case
£779.00 + shipping
Wow! What a beautiful Stratocaster this is. Built in 2021 it has barely been used & I would describe it as "excellent" condition. The Hybrid II models from Fender feature an Alder body, Maple neck & Rosewood fingerboard. A modern 9.5" fretboard radius, Hybrid II Custom voiced pickups, 2 point locking tremolo system, locking tuners & a beautiful Forest Blue gloss finish. It looks stunning.
Other notable features are that the back of the neck has a satin finish which feels silky smooth when playing and the truss rod is adjusted at the headstock so no more neck removals during set up.
Overall, this guitar is in a 9/10 condition. It was a 9.5/10 but it took a slight knock from a prospective buyer and there is a 2mm mark on the bottom edge. I have filled this and then flatted & polished it. This is photographed in the gallery and as you can see, it barely notices. The guitar plays & sounds fabulous as you would expect.
Here's some info from Fender
HYBRID II CUSTOM VOICED PICKUP
US Adopted "Hybrid II Custom Voiced Pickup", which was jointly developed from scratch in cooperation with the product management team. Gain and tone balance are optimized to accommodate all genres of music.
The standard Orange Drop capacitor, which gives an excellent attack feeling, is used as standard. The pure tone jack with four contacts is adopted for the jack part, and the connectivity that can be firmly fixed and the transmissibility of the electric signal are improved.

Comes with Gear4Music/Thomann Black 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. 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 £40 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.
If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.
Or, you can buy quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.
I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.
Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
