This a 2016 Fender Classic 50's body with a 2022 Fender Original 60's nitro neck. With new HSC and setup! 8lbs even. Free Shipping!

I always loved the sound of the 50's Strats and the feel of the 60's strats, so I decided to build this one. The body is a Fender classic 50's alder SSS in Vintage faded green MIM, this was an FSR limited run guitar. It has the correct vintage Fender staggered pole 50's pickups wired to a new Fender 5 way switch (I know this is not 50's, but a nice useful upgrade) now you get the 2 and 4 position sounds that every strat needs! 6 point vintage Fender tremelo bridge with a large steel block and FU-Tone heavy duty springs. The green theme began to take shape on its own when I decided to add the mint green pearloid pickguard and all Fender mint green plastics. I then ordered the green hard shell case to complete the look. The neck is one of my favorites of all time, the U.S. made Fender Original 60's rosewood with Nitro finish. You can see in some of the pics that the headstock even has some nitro checking in the finish! I have been using this neck for the past few years on many of my strats. With new Fender single line staggered tuners and an AVRI string tree (probably do not need it with the staggered tuners, but has the vintage look and belongs on the 60's headstock). This a 9.5 radius fretboard just fully conditioned with awesome frets. Just polished and leveled all the fret ends have been smoothed out and the fret board has rolled vintage feeling edges. A nice "C" shape profile with a bone nut cut to perfection. A new Fender Corona neck plate. Just set up with Ernie Ball 9-42 strings and 1.25mm action at the 12th fret. No buzzing and easy to play. If you like that classic 50's strat sound and a smooth 60's feel, this one is for you!

I am including a Mooer drum machine mini pedal to practice with and a new Fender strap. This turned out exactly the way I envisioned it, the combination of Mexican and U.S. made, 50's and 60's vibes, true vintage 50's sound, but with a 5 way switch, something a little different, but recognizable and really fun to play! Set up and ready to gig. 8lbs even
