FENDER 2018 CLASSIC SERIES 50s STRATOCASTER Daphne Blue Strat Nice! 62000
You're looking at a 2018 Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster in beautiful Daphne Blue finish. Has the distinctive V-shaped 7.25" radius neck that feels great in the hands. Beautiful amber tint to the neck. Frets are in good shape with only some very minor wear.
Daphne is one of Fender's cool retro "car colors," and definitely evokes that vintage vibe. Previous owner changed the pickguard from single- to 3-ply which necessitated a couple extra screws. Overall I'd call it 8/10 condition with one mark on the edge and a couple intentional worn spots on the edge for a relic vibe and a small wood imperfection on headstock (see pics). Also one extra screw hole on back of guitar for no known reason, and no rear tremolo cover. Weight is 7 pounds, 5 ounces. 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. I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere.) Thanks for looking!

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.
