FENDER 2001 Classic Series 50s Stratocaster Clean! Vintage Black Strat 98286
This is an early 2001 Fender 50s Classic Series Stratocaster in the somewhat rare black finish in excellent condition. This was the third year of production for the Classic Series, and the woods have aged 21 years for better tone and yet it looks almost new. Has the distinctive soft V neck--feels great in the hands. Nice amber tint to the maple neck.
Frets are in good shape with some minor flattening. Cosmetically super clean. There are no dings or scratches. There a couple tiny marks on the edges, but way too small to show in pictures. All stock condition. No tremolo bar or case. Weight is 7 pounds, 14 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

The Fender '50s Stratocaster Electric Guitar is a reissue that captures the real feel of the Buddy Holly-era Strat. Its deep body contours, characteristic V-shaped maple neck, vintage-style hardware, classic colors, and aged plastic parts all lend authenticity to the Strat that helped birth rock 'n' roll.

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.
