Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster 2005 Sunburst

No sales tax for customers outside California.

This 2005 Stratocaster is in excellent condition with very little fret wear and few signs of use.  

The Fender serial number search system reveals that this is an American Deluxe Strat, but it avoided the contoured heel that I see on most from this period.  While that contour makes some ergonomic sense, I've just never had an issue playing a traditional Strat, so I don't miss it one bit and I prefer the more traditional look.  

The neck is perfect.  There are no issues, repairs etc.  Just a solid guitar that you'll always be able to depend on to be ready to go when you are.

Here is a copy/paste from the interwebs, discussing the N3 pickups that are atock in this model:

Fender's N3 Noiseless Strat pickups give you the classic bite and chime of traditional single-coil pickups, without the dreaded 60-cycle hum. Built with a stacked set of Alnico V magnets, N3 Noiseless pickups provide you with the same level of noise cancellation you'd expect out of humbuckers. But thanks to Fender's cutting-edge design, N3 Noiseless pickups also give you the warmth and tonal balance most stacked dual-coil pickups are missing. Bottom line: if you want your Strat to sound like a Strat should, but you don't want to worry about hum, then you need Fender N3 Noiseless Strat pickups.
