FENDER TOM DELONGE STRATOCASTER Seafoam Surf Green Strat 70s Headstock Bag 62252


Regular price $799
Fender Tom Delonge Signature--great single pickup Strat with Seymour Duncan humbucker.

Description
This is an early first year production 2001 Fender Tom Delonge Stratocaster in Seafoam Green finish (aka Surf Green). These are rare hardtail Strats known for having a great Seymour Duncan Invader humbucker and single volume control--and being slung by Blink 182's frontman. They are also popular with the modding crowd because they're routed for three pickups under the pickguard, so you can mod it how you want! Tonewise, nothing fancy, just face-melting, high-output from this pickup. It excels at fat distortion and chunky rhythm playing. The string-thru, hardtail, and Duncan combine for massive sustain and tone. This guitar looks like new except for one ding on the edge sustained in shipping. Literally looks super clean other than that. I think it saw minimal playing time. Neck, frets, playability very nice. Buyer could conceivably have a small paint repair done and it would be a near mint Delonge. In seafoam green and mint these go for $1000+ these days. Weight is 7 pounds, 10 ounces. Fender Deluxe gigbag and paperwork included (I will include an aftermarket hard case instead for an extra $50--USA buyers only!). I will include a strap and set of straplocks as a bonus. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks.

Guitar Setup

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!

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.
