Fender Stratocaster American Deluxe 50th Anniversary 2005 Sunburst

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

This 2005 Fender 50th Anniversary American Deluxe Stratocaster was stashed by the original owner when it was purchased new. 

It was played just a few times, as you can see in the pics.  It was traded in towards a Martin guitar that better fit the needs of the gentleman who traded it in.

This is a really nice example that weighs less than most at just 8 pounds, 1 ounce.  Most are closer to the mid 8 pound range or more, and most listings you see won't list the weight.

The entire guitar was verified during our intake process, which includes a check of the truss rod to make sure there is room for future neck relief adjustments.  We set the guitar up to proper spec with a new set of nickel D'Addario, 10-46.  It plays perfectly with no issues whatsoever.

The original case is included, with all the original paperwork therein.
