RARE! FENDER ANTIGUA STRATOCASTER FSR Ltd Run Strat Awesome Finish 2012 MIM 88251
This is a 2012 Fender Antigua Stratocaster with matching pickguard, made in Mexico (serial no. MX12088251). Fender has only issued this finish 3 times in their history, most recently in an early 2000s Japanese run. This Fender Mexico run produced only 180 units in America and another few hundred around the world. This is a rare chance to get a Strat with this iconic Antigua look. The guitar is in excellent condition. Cosmetically, there are only minor scuffs on the back and some minor fret wear. Overall it's a 9/10 condition. Weight is 7 pounds, 12 ounces. No case or trem bar, and it's missing the rear tremolo cover. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

A Fender Special Run Strat in the rare Antigua finish.
The Fender classic yet seldom-seen Antigua finish returns for this special Stratocaster model. The distinctively shaded body hue debuted in the late 1960s and was briefly revived with a more graduated greenish tint in 1977, when it first appeared on both the Stratocaster body and pickguard. Antigua-finish Fender instruments have appeared only sporadically since the late 1970s and are rare finds now, prized by discerning collectors worldwide.
This new special-edition Antigua Stratocaster is available only in limited quantities and is an authentic evocation of one of Fender' most historically exclusive finish options.

All setups are done by our in-house 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 isˇhighly subjectiveˇyou may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
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.
