You're looking at a rare 2005 Fender Toronado GT guitar, part of the "Big Block" series made in Korea in olive green metallic finish. These were made for about two years only and are now discontinued. Don't see too many floating around. They are absolutely killer guitars. Jazzmaster shaped matching color headstock. Satin back neck with rosewood fretboard and jumbo frets. Mother of Pearl fret dots. This one has upgraded Fender locking tuners as well.
These have dual USA-made Seymour Duncan humbuckers. The racing stripe is big and bold. This guitar turns heads. This particular GT is in very nice cosmetic condition. A couple marks on the back and a hairline paint crack at the neck joint (see pics). All hardware is clean. Frets are in good condition. Weight is 7 pounds, 5 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup 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. We spray out any pots that are noisy, 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. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
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.
The Fender Toronado GT HH (05–06) was crafted in Korea, sporting a mahogany body and Seymour Duncan humbuckers rather than Duncan-designed pickups. It was part of Fender's "Big Block" series.
