FENDER 2017 Classic Series 50s Stratocaster DAPHNE BLUE Clean! Strat 94225
This is a Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster in the very desirable Daphne Blue finish. The guitar looks and plays amazing. Has the amber tinted maple neck. The most distinctive feature you'll notice about these guitars is the soft V-shaped neck behind the nut and first fret. Feels great in the hands.
Has vintage appointments like single-ply white pickguard, tinted neck, aged plastics, and vintage-style bridge and tuners. Cosmetically, it's super clean--call it 9.5/10. Pickguard has some scuffs and marring by the truss rod (see pics). I tried to capture a tiny pinhead imperfection up by the tuners, but it's too small for camera to capture. Back of neck is awesome and clean. No case or tremolo bar. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
PS: If you're looking at Fender's new "50s" guitar the Vintera model--it is nothing like these Classic Series. The Vintera has no V neck. It's a modern 9.5" radius neck, and has a 2-point trem--it's hardly a "vintage" guitar.

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 '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.
