Please read the entire description because this is a custom built guitar unlike all the others. This is a Vintera 60’ Series Strat due to the older stock authentic Fender Vintera pickups which makes what a Vintera is. There are many added bonuses and a huge one at the end of my description. I put several pics of the build along with some reviews that I get which has continually been 5 stars for 14+ years. Recently the Vintera is Fenders hot ticket as well as the Pau Ferro fretboard. I purposely didn’t use the vintage neck as the deep V contour and the 7.5 radius that use to be used is not a big fan favorite. You’ll see the Pau Ferro in a lot of current Fenders as the flatter fretboard is much more popular with the newer players and is great for power chords and soloing. To build this I used one of my older stock (late 90’s-20’s) bodies that was laying around for ever. It had minor dings but no damage just age. So my friend and I restored it but leaving some minor indents then clearcoating like a mirror with vintage looking orange peel finish.No chips, no cracks , just covering over it to give that vintage look. It was exactly what I wanted as opposed to the relic crap that they do today. I hate them. This has serious character and the finish looks mint has a great vintage flare but clean, as you can see in the pics. It came out incredible and then I finished it off with a custom psychedelic 60’s feel pickguard and backplate to make it sick looking. Very hippie 60’s. I wish we had these but we resorted to painting them. I also loaded the pickguard with a Genuine USA Fender super switch and control pots. This allows you to experiment on custom wiring and allowed me to to use wiring from the late 50’s which is not common these days but I believe essential for todays players. I enclosed a pic of the wiring and have more info. You didn’t think I made this up did you. A lot do it. Basically, position 1 is the neck, position 2 is for the neck and the bridge as opposed to the middle which I love this way better. The middle is not usually the favored position for most. One artist of fender doesn’t have a middle pickup, He doesn’t use it. Position 3 is still the middle and 4 is still the middle and bridge which makes sense to me as it’s mellow but brightens up with the bridge engaged. The 5 position is still the bridge. Take note of the wiring as I use high end shielded braided cable for grounding and add additional foil in the control cavity for noise. It definitely works wonders as these are not noiseless pick ups and was ok and always accepted for their unique sound. The USA tone pots were a major plus. Overall, it sounds awesome. Bottom line, this is one cherry for an incredibly affordable deal. A real vintage flare with some of todays tricks. I do believe this tops them all. This is totally sweet without braking your bank. I don’t expect this for the advanced guys as they are already there but for the new guys with a bit under there belt,, I’ll put this piece up with the best. It plays, sounds and feels like you forked over $2500 for one. This is a winner. Dont miss it if your just starting as this is the a gem.

Heres the big bonus

First, I just reduced the price as I have 5 more builds. You can’t get a Squire with this case for my price. This is CUSTOM and mint. True Fender Vintage.

Finally, there are pics of 2 cases. One is a late 90’s or so, vintage desirable mint poodle hard shell case. The other is a deluxe early TSA approved military top shelf case. They are both mint and you can pick one for FREE included with the guitar. Don’t sleep on this as I’m offering on other listings so whoever hits first wins. Then the offer will be removed. This just sweetens up the pot. I sell by my description and the supplied pics as I have no refunds. I rely on my reputation and encourage your questions before committing to your purchase. I will happily help. As you see my reputation is 100% 5 Star. Do the math… if you buy a guitar and want a great vintage case for $200-$250 what are you really paying for this guitar. It’s impossible to get this value at this price. Hope to talk to you soon.

Almost forgot, Check out the bunch of my other guitars Listed. It’s growing and they need a friend. Look at some of my other listings. Take notice of lots of necks. I hand choose the best. The last pic is another guitar where I use special braided cable and added foil in the cavity to reduce noise. Everything is done like custom shop to insure the best.They’re all great.
