Description This is a killer 2005 Fender Buddy Guy Stratocaster in the very rare red finish with white polka dots. These just don’t come around often, and especially in this near mint condition. Plastic still on pickguard, and factory sticker on tremolo cover. Grab this before its gone. Weight is 7 pounds, 8 ounces. No case or tremolo bar included. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.
Manufacturer Info Nail Buddy Guy's stinging tone and vibe on the dot with the Buddy Guy Standard Stratocaster. With a bold polka-dot finish as flamboyant as Guy himself, it's likely one of the most distinctive Strat® models you'll ever lay eyes (and hands) on. And with pure tone and vintage-style features, it's a superbly spot-on performer worthy of one of the greatest names in electric blues.
Polka-dot finish Soft "V”-shaped neck profile 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets Standard single-coil Stratocaster pickups with five-way switching Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge

What You Get -- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings. -- FREE USA shipping. -- 30-day return policy. -- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
Guitar Setup 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!
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.
