Fender Mexican Big Apple Strat

Sorry, this listing has ended.

Ended!

Hey folks Here's something special. I'll try to curb the hyperbole. This is a 1998 Mexican Fender Strat that someone has turned into a 'Big Apple Strat' by replacing the electronics. Originally the Big Apples were USA Strats equipped with Seymour Duncan humbuckers ('59 neck, Pearly Gates Plus bridge) The 5 way switch allows for coil-splitting in certain positions. Quite seriously the bridge pickup is the best I've EVER heard, in any guitar. It's that staggeringly good. The neck is superb too, but the bridge blows me away. Tonally this thing can handle anything. It crunches, and screams, and wails, and tears strips off the walls with high gain. It sounds creamy and warm clean – especially with the neck coil split. It is a true gem of a guitar. It's possibly the heaviest Strat I've had. Will try to weigh it and add details later, but it's certainly more 'Les Paul' kind of weight. The neck is outstanding as you would expect. Very little fret-wear. There are some scuffs and dings, and a couple of tiny holes from where the pickguards didn't match up, but they are insignificant, and disappear from your thoughts the second you plug this in. I've had it at home for months, and had to think long and hard about selling it, but I am cursed with always wanting something new, and can't keep them all, so here it is. I can't accept silly offers for this folks. It's simply too good. Call in and see for yourself (Doodlebug Guitars, Afflecks, 52 Church Street, Manchester, M41PW) or drop me a line for more details. Cheers – Andrew :)
