FENDER ROADHOUSE STRATOCASTER RARE SONIC BLUE S-1 Switch Texas Special PU 3182


Regular price $799
This is not your average Strat--S-1 Switching and great pickups. 

Description
This is a 2013 Fender Roadhouse Stratocaster in rare Sonic Blue finish. The guitar is in excellent cosmetic and playing condition. S-1 switching and a V-6 Tone Selector knob (middle Tone knob), along with Texas Special pickups add up to a lot of tonal options. Alder body coupled with a 9.5" radius, C-shaped neck with a rosewood fretboard and jumbo frets. Looks great with the pearloid pickguard and large 70s-style headstock. Cosmetically, near perfect. No dings or scratches. Frets are excellent. Weight is 8 pounds, 0 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. No case or tremolo bar included. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking. 

Manufacturer Info
Fender's Deluxe Roadhouse Stratocaster tears the place down with extra-scorching Strat sound and style. Its three Texas Special single-coil pickups are wired for supercharged tonal versatility, with a special V6 rotary switch (disguised as the middle tone knob) that delivers six distinct onboard preamp tone settings from wiry single-coil to searing lead. The S-1 switch built into the volume knob bypasses the preamp completely for pure Strat tone.

Other features include a tinted maple neck with "modern C" profile and large '70s-style headstock, 9.5"-radius maple or rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, five-way pickup switch, four-ply aged white pearloid pickguard, three aged white control knobs (master volume/S-1, V6, master tone), and vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge.

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.
