This is a Fender Classic Series '50s Stratocaster in the very desirable Daphne Blue finish. Right off the bat I need to say this had a genuine Fender neck put on by previous owner that is a 21-fret soft V neck with 9.5 inch radius and medium-jumbo frets!
So this guitar is a bit of a hybrid. I believe it makes it very close to a "50s Classic Player" Strat. Only difference being those came with a 2-point tremolo. You'll see in pics that the heel of the neck says "Genuine Fender Parts" and it's dated 2018. Inside the neck pocket there were some black smudges, so it's hard to see the date, but I believe it's a 2007 body. Looking under the pickguard and in tremolo cavity we find all normal Fender pickups and parts for the 50s Classic Series Strat, as well as no signs of refinishing or anything weird.
COLOR: See pics below. I took a pic with this guitar (in the middle) next to a Surf Green 50s and Daphne Delonge Strat and this one's color seems to fall in between the two--but it definitely leans closer to the Daphne. Depending on lighting these can look blue or green. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT COLOR--CONTACT ME BEFORE BUYING. Pictures can be deceiving with this color. Moving on, the guitar is great looking but does have a couple marks but I'd still rate it 9/10. Frets are A+ condition. The back of the neck has great wood grain running parallel down its length. Back of neck is almost pristine except for one fingernail indent on the skunk stripe behind the 4th fret. It has a 3-ply pickguard and rear cover, which look like aftermarket parts. This all boils down to a Strat that has vintage appointments like a 50s/60s Strat, but mixes in modern frets and neck radius for a rare combination. Comes with tremolo bar but no case. Weight is 7 pounds, 15 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
