FENDER USA STRAT-O-SONIC + OHSC Lk Tuners & Duncan PU American StratOSonic 02109


Regular price $1,100

This is a 2003 Fender Strat-O-Sonic guitar in Crimson Red Transparent finish, made in the USA. It comes with sealed factory paperwork and original Fender hard case. Frets have been recently leveled and are in beautiful shape. Previous owner was a luthier, so it was well cared for. Tuners were upgraded to some nice Fender locking. P90 pickups upgraded to Seymour Duncans. Guitar really plays like butter and it's got a killer rarely seen Fender Tech Tonic bridge. Imperfections include a little mesiness around truss rod hole some edge dings, and other minor scuffs. It's a player but still looks good. Just been given a full setup and detailed cleaning. Ready for its next owner. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.)  I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

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.
