I Say:

A great example of this particular version of this guitar, the Fender Stratocaster ’62 reissue.  The lacquer is near unmarked, there are some minor abrasions to the rear – but if you’re keen enough these could be polished out.

The neck and rosewood fingerboard are near enough unmarked.

The front of the body is clean.

All electronics are original and crackle free, apart from the fact that this guitar has been upgraded to a 5 way toggle, which gives the combination sounds of pickups 1&2, and 2&3.

Comes with original Hard Case and Case Candy as pictured
