Fender 2018 FSR Competition STRATOCASTER 50s GT MIJ Lake Placid Blue 03323
This is a 2018 Fender FSR Traditional 50s Stratocaster in Lake Placid Blue with GT competition stripe. These were made in Japan for only one year and a short run. 50s style Strat with vintage pickups. Fender specs call it a 7.25" radius, C-shaped neck but to me feels chunkier, more like the U-shaped necks on the 70s Strats.
Guitar is in great shape and just been set up. Weight is 8 pounds, 3 ounces. Frets are in great shape. Cosmetically it's super clean, 9/10 condition. Actually still has original factory plastic covering the pick guard, tremolo cover, and pickups. Comes with tremolo bar but no case. 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.
For guitarists who must have original-era Strat® sound, look and feel, the Made in Japan Traditional Series ‘50s Stratocaster epitomizes the instrument during its second decade. With authentic features including vintage-style pickups, synchronized tremolo bridge and 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard, the Traditional Strat feels like an old friend. To top it all off, these limited-edition Strats sport custom competition stripes for added flair.
