2020 Fender MIJ Traditional Series 60's Stratocaster Lake Placid Blue & new hard case
£779.00 + shipping
This 60's style Stratocaster is a Fender Made in Japan model from the "Traditional Series" which came out a couple of years ago. Essentially it's the same as the old '62 reissues but this one is just a couple of years old and has had little use.
Condition is excellent but it had a couple of tiny dents when it came in which have been filled smoothed and polished. These can be seen in the gallery. I've just looked online and these are available in the UK with a price tag of £1299.00 supplied with a gig bag. So here's a saving of over £500 on the new price with a new hard case thrown in. I think that's a bargain any day of the week! Here's some blurb from Fender and some specifications:
Made in Japan Traditional series derived by combining the aesthetics of Fender's traditional musical instrument production with the sophisticated craftsmanship of Japan. Made in Japan Traditional 60s Stratocaster® has a gloss finish basswood body. A 9.5-inch radius "U" shaped maple neck with 21 vintage-style frets provides a classic performance that is unique to the Traditional series. The 6-saddle vintage style Synchronized Tremolo bridge, and the original pickups selected for the Traditional series, produce realistic, musical vintage tones. The narrowly designed nut width makes it easy for Japanese players to play. Solid guitar craftsmanship and flexible answers to player needs are reflected in this series.

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.
