In the world of electric guitars there are instruments that are considered iconic and legendary. These guitars exemplify the essence of what players look for in a true player instrument. One of the first instruments that comes to mind is "Blackie",  the fabled Stratocaster that is certainly one of those true icons. The Guitar Dude is proud to offer one of the coolest, mojo infused  Strats we've had come through the shop. This Fender ST57-70TX '57 vintage re-issue Stratocaster has a deep vibe that really resonates with us. The contoured alder body is finished in black and is loaded with a trio of killer Fender Custom Shop Texas Special pickups. This particular set seems to have a little something special about them and they really deliver some extra bite. We plugged this guitar up to our vintage Deluxe Reverb and were excited about what we heard. The pickups seem to have a bit more bloom and compression than some and really delivered the quintessential pumped Strat tone in spades. The neck is super playable with a comfortable oval profile that measures 0.866 at the 1st fret and 0.957 as we reach the 12th fret. The neck is straight and true and is topped with 21 frets, executed with vintage gauge fret wire. The guitar has just been given the seal of approval by our tech and has been freshly strung with 10-46 gauge strings and is set up for optimal playability. In a world of iconic guitars this is one that holds it's own to make a timeless, indelible impression.

It has just been professionally set up and dialed in for optimal playability and tone. It has low action with no buzzing or dead spots and is an absolute joy to play. It has been deep cleaned and detailed. All guitars will arrive looking and playing great. The frets have been dressed/polished and the fingerboard was cleaned. (Unfinished Rosewood and Ebony boards get treated with Fret Doctor - a proprietary all natural oil that is the best on the market) It was professionally set up and has brand new strings, the action was adjusted, the intonation is spot on and it plays excellent. All the electronics work flawlessly.

Neck is perfectly straight and the truss rod works with no issues

Intonation is spot-on

It has been professionally set up with nice low action & new American made strings.

If needed, the frets will be dressed leveled & crowned

All frets are polished prior to shipping when they are set up - They will shine like new!

A demo video will be recorded prior to shipping.
