This is a great guitar made in Japan 1994/5. The guitar is in excellent condition with very few marks as can be seen from the pictures. The action is low, and intonation is perfect on all frets with no buzz. The pickups have been upgraded to Texas Specials, with a black tortoise shell pickguard to replace the original. (I have the originals for continuity). The reason for sale is I already have another strat and I would like something different as a secord guitar, and am looking at Telecasters and Gretsch. although I'm offering the guitar for sale, I would consider a trade.
