Description
This is a 2012 Fender American Special Stratocaster in Surf Green. Excellent condition and comes with what looks like a vintage hard case with real leather endcaps and sought after UK-made Cheney clasps. These have Texas Special pickups with Greasebucket tone circuit. The all maple neck is a modern C shape with 9.5” radius and jumbo frets.

The guitar is in great condition with only some small marks (I have pictured some of the marks, others are too small to show on camera). All marks are scuffs or mild scratching. There is no paint missing. Back of neck is very smooth but with some small indents here and there. The frets are in very good condition. Weight is 7 pounds, 8 ounces. The case is in well used condition but still functions and keeps the guitar safe. No tremolo bar included. I have checked around and set the price lower than any other Surf Green USA Strat online. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
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!

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.



Manufacturer Info
A twist on the classic American Standard, the Fender American Special Stratocaster swaps in hotter Texas Special pickups, the new Greasebucket tone circuit, a flatter neck radius and a vintage spec'ed tremolo - all at a lower price point than the rest of the American Fender line. The Greasebucket tone circuit allows to maintain steady volume and level bass as you roll off highs, for a more consistent tone. A perfect first step for players entering into the world of American-made Fenders, or anybody looking for a great blues, country or indie rock axe.

Fender's American Special Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar gives you popular Strat features at a price that's nearly unheard of for a US-made Fender. It all starts with an alder body for classic Strat spank, and it's all wrapped up in a great-looking gloss urethane finish. The Fender trademark maple neck feels great with its Modern C profile, and jumbo frets make for fast and precise fretwork. In the tone department, a trio of Texas Special single-coils dish out the chime while a vintage-style trem deals with the whammy action. You're going to love the Fender American Special Stratocaster.

American-made quality at an unbeatable price
Fender's American Special Series exists to do one thing: give you access to genuine US-made Fenders at unbeatable prices. The American Special Stratocaster gives you a great selection of cool Strat features, including a supremely playable maple neck/fingerboard with jumbo frets, three Texas Special single-coils, Fender's innovative Greasebucket tone control, a vintage-style synchronized tremolo, and a large '70s-style headstock. All in, it's quite a potent music-delivery system. And it's made right here in the USA in Fender's state-of-the-art Corona, California, factory.

Cut through the mix
You're sure to cut through the mix, thanks to a trio of Fender's Texas Special single-coils. Used in any one of the five possible switch positions, the pickups give you classic Fender tones that have been with us since the dawn of the Strat. But these pickups have a little something extra that sets the American Special Strat apart from previous Strat incarnations - a Greasebucket tone circuit and vintage-style tremolo round out the features on this beauty. If you're looking for an American-made Strat with unbeatable bang for the buck, it's the American Special Stratocaster!

Greasebucket tone control rolls off highs without affecting volume
Fender has fitted the American Special Stratocaster with their Greasebucket tone control, which rolls off highs without adding bass or affecting your volume. This is seriously cool, because it gives you explicit control over your tone onstage without your having to compensate for volume loss. It makes the American Special Strat a serious tone machine.
