    This guitar is all original, comes with tremolo bar (not pictured), has a straight neck, and is in excellent condition. There is no discernible fret wear and no dings. It has been played very little. Comes with original Fender Hard Shell Case. I will also include an extra set of D'Addario XL110 strings (.010-.046). I apologize for the bad pictures. They do not do the guitar justice. $750 shipped CONUS, $700 if bought local (central Virginia).

    Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

    Two string guides on the headstock, brushed finish saddles ... I believe that should be a late 80's/early to mid 90's, what you might call "early FMIC". They're a little heavier than current ones.

    Right price range, Strats aren't the easiest things to sell right now. The market is so flooded with them - all those MIM's and such drive the prices down.

    Good luck with the sale!

    It is a 2000 model, as indicated by the serial number and the neck stamp. It weighs 7.5 lbs.

    Looks like nice rosewood on this one. And I love the block saddle two point trems.......they feel great to the hand and stay in tune really well.

    Good luck!

    I haven't, but perhaps I will. Since I visit this forum regularly, I thought I would try here first. Thanks for the tip.

    I really like the modernized two point strat bridge. It's easy to adjust the bridge plate height on, and the smooth saddles feel great against your palm. I wish they had stuck with those saddles coming out of the American Series. Vintage guys were calling out for bent saddles, but IMO, these feel better.

    It was made in 2000 and the serial number, at least the beginning of it, is z0028...

    Kool. Thanks for the info. I can't make a promise I know I can't keep, but I have my eye keenly on it . . . ;)

    :) I would tell you to come try it out, but that'd be quite a commute...
