This is a 2009 Fender 50s Classic Series Road Worn Stratocaster in black, made in Mexico (more pics below). This was made the second year of the Road Worn series. The Fender shop started to lighten their relic work after this. Many of the newer Road Worn guitars have much less wear (compare it to the 2017 worn Strat I'm selling right now). Look at all the bumps, dings, edge wear, etc, this baby has. All hardware has been worn to a nice dull glow. Fretboard has a faded look, and the back of the neck is worn satin smooth. Faded and yellowed plastics and pickguard. Tasteful wear showing the wood under the finish in appropriate places. Even though cosmetically it's worn all over, the neck, frets and electronics are in perfect shape. Tex Mex pickups sound great. If you like your guitars to feel like a nicely worn pair of blue jeans, this might be the one for you. Maybe you prefer a light relic, then the 2017 is for you, but if you want a heavy relic, go for one of these early ones. Weight is 7 pounds, 4 ounces. No tremolo bar or case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.
What You Get
All our setups are done by our in-house trained 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!
