This one is from 2007, the first year of production for the Hot Rod '62 Strat. It is in incredible condition for this age. It would be a strong "mint" except for some slight marking next to the back plate, which can be seen in the last photo. These are rare enough, but in this condition...very, very rare!

The plastic is still on the pickguard and the case hardware! The original American flag is still there as well. The sticker is still on the whammy bar hole

The finish is gorgeous and colorful and the rosewood fretboard is a rich, dark chocolate color.

This is the next- best thing to going back in a time machine and buying it new.

It comes with the beautiful Fender shoulder strap with strap locks, but I do not have the original whammy bar.

Weight is 7lbs, 10.5oz.

With respect to construction, playability and attention to detail, I would put this Strat on par with any Custom Shop instrument. And it sounds so good!
