Howdy all from Music Gear in Independence Missouri! I feel like this was the most popular strat color / pickguard combo from the late 90's.

***Updated info: We replaced the flat wound strings and put a set of Fender 10's on it.

Fender California Fat Strat serial number N7292665 with a nice period correct hard shell case. The guitar tunes up, has good working electronics and plays well in the lower registers. I will recommend a set up from your favorite local tech upon arrival. I'm getting decent fretting out and clankers especially on the low end past the 12th. Everything adjustable looks good and adjustable, so it probably just needs a good set up. Also it has flat wounds on it - which I'll assume you might want to swap out. The guitar over all has dings, bings, scratches and scuffs. There are a couple on the back of the neck you will feel when playing but they haven't slowed me down. Over all it is a good work horse of a usa strat - has a seymour in the bridge and makes plenty of good straty strat sounds. The case is nice and clean, shows wear and is missing the top of the neck pocket. It will provide good happy protection for shipping it out.
