Fender 2018 FSR TRADITIONAL STRATOCASTER with GT STRIPE MIJ Inca Silver 05267
Rare Strat with Chunky Maple Neck!
This is a 2018 Fender FSR Traditional Stratocaster in Inca Silver with with Shoreline Gold competition stripe. These go for $800 new and this only has a couple marks, so it looks very clean and you'll save $100 off the new price. 50s style Strat with vintage pickups. Fender specs call it a 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. Frets are good around 85% with only mild flattening. Overall I'd call it a 9/10 condition. Weight is 7 pounds, 12 ounces. Comes with black gig bag (I will include an aftermarket hard case instead for an extra $50--USA buyers only!). No 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!
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.

My setup on guitars 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. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I 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. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. 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.
