This is a 2002 Fender Tom Delonge Stratocaster in Grafitti Yellow finish. Very special one because it's close to new looking. No dings or scratches of any kind. I have bought/sold over 100 Delonge Strats in the past few years and they don't get any cleaner that this for a 16-year-old guitar. Really for a collector or Delonge aficionado. Like going back in time and getting one at the store. Now as to "mint" I rarely use that term because it can cause problems. I went over this guitar with a magnifying headset to really look up close. I found one or two tiny marks that are too small to show on camera and are not dings, but rather paint imperfections. To all intents this is nearly 10/10, but I'm gonna say 9.5/10 just in case. Nothing is perfect. Not even a guitar right off the assembly line. If you are going to be particular and go over it with a magnifying glass--ASK ALL QUESTIONS FIRST. There will be a 10% re-stocking fee for return of any reason other than a mechanical problem with this guitar because it is so clean and shouldn't be shipped back and forth for tire kicking. Weight is 7 pounds, 5 ounces. It comes with gig bag. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks.

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.
