This 1997 Fender American made Stratocaster is in excellent cosmetic condition showing very few signs of play wear throughout. The neck profile is that of a soft C shape and feels great in hand. The frets show very few signs of use and have tons of life left in them. This guitar has been professionally set up and plays fantastic up and down the fingerboard. The original pickups in this guitar sound extremely good and are very well balanced. The two point pivot tremolo system works as it should and is very smooth making for easy operation. The pickguard is a later replacement - it fits perfectly and looks outstanding against the Inca Silver finish. The case is also a later replacement made by Freedom and fits the guitar very well. This is an extremely well-made American Fender guitar that is sure to provide many years of loyal service and companionship. Perfectly suitable for stage, home or studio use.
