NOW KEEPING SO CANCEL THREAD. - Fender Stratocaster - upgraded - Lollar pick ups.
NOW KEEPING SO CANCEL THREAD.
I originally bought this second hand in New York in 2004 where I had a set of Lollar vintage blonde pick ups fitted.
It also has had the second tone pot replaced with a blend tone pot that allows you to add neck to bridge or vice versa and increases the girth and punch. You now have a master volume and a master tone plus the blend and a conventional 5 way selector.
The guitar has been refretted and the action and set up professionally done. Instead of the original 7.25 radius it is now closer to 9-10 radius with frets which are a bit chunkier than vintage. All work professionally completed . Comes with a tatty but functional hard case.
Not sure of exact year but believed a good few years old.
Plays looks and sounds superb.
The pick ups retail for £190 and are true vintage strat sound.
Any questions please ask.
Collection only from Guildford in Surrey.

Thanks for the advice but short of changing strings I leave all that sort of stuff to professionals.I'm the sort of person that would break the neck or strip a screw if I attempted that.
I must say when I went into the shop in New York it was only to buy the pick ups but I then picked up the guitar and played it and loved it - I think it cost me about $900. I then got them to fit the pick ups and had the other work on the neck etc done when I got home. It is just a great guitar that doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is. The price reflects that I don't know exactly what it is but it never bothered me I picked it up and loved it and that was above and beyond numerous other far more expensive strats that they had in there at the time.
I am more than happy for anyone to try it first in fact I'd prefer it.
does it just have Fender on the head-stock then ?, no serial ? MIJ, CIJ ect ect, need better photo of head-stock mate, people will want to know the origins of it before they shell out £500, that goes without saying fella
