Price or Trade Value : £600

I only very recently purchased this after quite a lengthy search for the right one.
It is a great instrument but a change in circumstance means that I have decided to stick with my lesser valued G&L.
I suspect that this could be one that I end up regretting selling, so I reserve the right to change my mind. :)

I've worked on plenty of U.S. Strats and I honestly think that this guitar is the equal and better than many of them. The neck and fretwork is exceptionally good.


Anyway, here is the spec:

U.S.A. Custom Shop Designed, built in Mexico 2010-11 Stratocaster.

Finished in Shoreline Gold, which is in as new condition.

All hardware and truss rod function perfectly.

Set up properly and fitted with a brand new set of Fender 10's.

Locking vintage style tuners.

American Pickups.

2 point synchronised trem. Vintage style saddles.

Aged white control knobs.

Deluxe gig bag, owners manual and hang tags etc.



Ideally cash on collection from my place in Herts. Bank Transfer or Pay Pal also acceptable (buyer to cover the fees).

As I don't have a hard case, I would prefer collection.
If posting is required then the courier charge will be an additional 16. I will probably opt for removing the neck and bubble wrapping everything, prior to boxing up but we can of course, discuss options.



More pics available, I'm happy to email them.

Does this have the v neck profile?

Yes it does. Fender actually describe it as a soft v neck profile.

'North of the Isle of Wight, South of Keswick' is perhaps a bit vague to someone (i.e. me) who has a friend who might be interested...

You're quite right it is a bit vague. :)
I really thought that the location was stated in the ad. It should have been but this time I failed to include it.

Anyway it's Hoddesdon. Herts.
