FENDER ROAD WORN PLAYER SERIES STRATOCASTER Sunburst Strat Relic 9.5 Radius 86444


Regular price $799
Road worn Strat in Sunburst--sweet!
 
Description
You're looking at a 2011 Fender Player Series Road Worn Stratocaster in sunburst finish. It is in excellent condition. If you're familiar with the 50s Classic Series Road Worn, this is similar but it mixes in more modern features with the road worn look. Instead of a soft V neck with 7.25 radius, this opts for a modern C-shape with a flatter 9.5" radius. Frets are medium jumbo vs 6105 style. It also has 3-ply black pickguard, as opposed to single ply. Hotter Texas Special pickups give a little extra sizzle. So if you like the road worn look but want a modern feel, you'll like this guitar. Fender did a nice job on these lightly reliced guitars. They have tasteful wear showing the wood under the finish in appropriate places such as the armrest and lower curve. All the hardware is dulled and has a light patina of scuffs and marks. Attention to detail is pretty amazing for a guitar in this price range. Back of neck nicely worn down to wood for a faster satin feel. It plays better than most Strats I've had come through my shop lately. Get this. You won't be sorry. Comes with tremolo arm and Fender paperwork, but no case. Weight is 7 pounds, 4 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing, as well as full specs.) Thanks for looking.

Manufacturer Info
An amazingly comfortable Strat for the modern player! Fender's Road Worn Player Stratocaster offers up hotter pickups for smoldering, fat tone. And it's easy on the hands, with a flatter fingerboard for super-smooth bending. Of course, this axe is easy on the eyes too, thanks to Fender's hip "Road Worn" treatment, giving the Road Worn Player Stratocaster the vibe of a well-loved instrument that's been out gigging with you for years. You get that "well-loved" vibe in a great-playing (and brand-new) guitar, with the Road Worn Player Stratocaster!

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
