This is a custom built strat with Genuine Fender locking tuners, Tusq brand self lubricating nut, fresh 9 gauge D'Adario strings, a beautiful mirror green finish on the body and an upgraded (white Pearloid color) pickup set with staggered Alnico 5 magnets. Fretboard has been sanded and polished for smooth play.

....If you're familiar with the inside electronics, (or if you care to know), the volume and tone controls are 250K potentiometers (Pots) and has a 5 Way Switch to select the pickups properly. The output resistance for the pickups are as follows: Neck 6.0K 4.0H, Middle 6.0K 4.0H, and Bridge 6.4K 4.5H....

If the above specs for the electronics doesn't mean anything to you, just know that it simply means the sound of this guitar has been designed to be very close to the early 1960s-1070s Fender Stratocasters and most people will not be able to tell the difference. The body cavity for electronics has also been shielded but these are low noise pickups anyway.

...Some comments from the manufacture about the pickup set are: "...This great sounding prewired pickguard features just the right amount of output, a tight low end, slightly scooped mids and defined treble. It delivers beautiful clean tones and loves to be pushed into sweet overdrive- maintains great clarity without getting harsh."

...Now the fine print...
If you're a "Brand Snob", or hardcore Fender Stratocaster connoisseur - this is not the guitar for you as you can probably notice from the neck plate and the head stock logos. (What that means, and as I said), this is a custom built guitar made to sound exactly the the vintage strats. This is not a MIM (Made in Mexico), Squire / Squier or "authentic" Fender Stratocaster...

In other words, this upgraded guitar will play as good as or better than any USA or MIM version for a fraction of the price. So if you want a great sounding quality Fender Strat without having to spend thousands of dollars, this is it. The price is firm at the moment, but I may consider offers in a few weeks if it doesn't sell. The price is also basically what I have into it not including my time of course. I can meet you in or around Grand Rapids within a 20 mile radius. Please email or text for best response - thanks for the interest and let me know what you think.

PS. This guitar has been properly setup with low action and proper intonation. It comes with the strap as pictured but not the stand. If you need a stand or practice amp, those are extra and I've got a couple to choose from - see my other craigslist ads.
