Texas Special USA Pickups 2TS & new hard case
£749.00 + shipping
Although this guitar has a serial number dating it at nearly 20 years old this Fender Japan '57 Reissue Stratocaster is in really good condition. This model has factory fitted USA Fender Texas Special pickups & a solid Alder Body. This one is in 2 colour sunburst or sometimes called "Tobacco Burst". It also has a Maple fretboard & like most vintage Fenders, a 7.25" (184mm) fretboard radius and an 8 hole single ply scratchplate. All in all an excellent example of a '57 reissue.
As stated, it is in superb condition with no dents or other damage apart from a small scratch on the upper horn. There is some corrosion to the bridge saddles (not excessive) and a small area of rust on the tremolo arm. There are some playing marks on the pickguard and some fine scratches. There are no indents on the frets which have probably 70% of their life left.

Hard Case Policy
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 £50 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.
