This listing is for a genuine collectors edition '50th Anniversary' Fender American Standard Series Strat in two tone sunburst. This was a special edition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stratocaster guitar. Fender infamously gave all Stratocasters made in 2004 commemorative 50th anniversary neck plates resulting in a lot of confusion as to which guitars were genuine special editions and which were standard production models. This is the real deal and is set apart from the standard American Strat by the beautifully figured ash body, higher spec pick-guard, commemorative collectors edition tweed case and Custom Shop '54 pickups. Please feel free to check the serial number with Fender to confirm. These are wonderful instruments & genuine collectors items that are now becoming rare, especially in condition like this one. This guitar has spent most of it's life in the case. There is no notable play/fret wear. The trem and tuners work as they should and keep everything stable and in tune. Cosmetically it is virtually unmarked. I like to be really picky when describing my items and really searching for imperfections, you can see there are a few small hairline marks on the lacquer if you get the right angle of the light to reflect off them. Otherwise there are no noticeable scratches scrapes or dings anywhere, even the back is near pristine. This guitar has been looked after and hardly played and it shows. The ash body is one of the nicest I have seen and a lovely maple neck. It looks stunning and plays just as well. Comes with original hard case, case candy, original whammy bar, tools and keys. I am a genuine, honest eBayer. This is a genuine sale to fund another guitar purchase. I would prefer local pickup as then you can inspect and play the guitar prior to taking it away but I will post if necessary. If so, the guitar will be packed securely and sent via 24 hour courier fully insured. Check my feedback. I have sold several guitars on here and have always had very happy buyers. Priced to sell, no offers please. Any questions please get in touch!
