Hi,

I am selling my beloved Fenix strat which is a very reluctant sale!

The guitar is in great condition considering its age with only a fhew dings and scratches as you would expect. There are two small dings on the back of the neck but nothing major at all. There are a couple of dings on the body and a hairlime crack going from the neck socket but this is in the paint and not the wood(had it checked out just in case).

I have seen some of these fine instruments on here but I havent seen one starting with the serial number E8, so this is one of the early ones.

The neck is one of the best necks I have played!!!! it is amazing thats why as I am writing this I am still not sure if I should let her go!! It is a medium to thin neck with a c profile.

The middle pickup was missing when I bought the guitar so replaced it with an old one I had which came out of a Squire. Its a good pickup but I never really use the middle position!

The original tone pots have been changed with CTS 250k pots but the original ones will come with the guitar aswel.

The tone and vol controlls are not original.

Will be posted in the guitar case provided.(see first pic)

No returns, so if you have any questions or want more pics please let me know.

Payment via paypal or cash on collection only.

If you live local feel free to come and have a try.

Thanx.

============================================================================

You cant tell by the pics but the white colour of the guitar has aged nicely.

The pickup cavity has got copper shielding tape in it.

The guitar was setup to my likeing so obviously you will have to adjust it to what feels right for you.

Frets are in good condition.

Everytime i changed the strings the guitar was cleaned properly and lemon oil on fretboard.

The intonation is perfect when set up, and you can get the action low if you like that sort of thing.

==================================================================

Just in case you cant see the serial number in the pic it reads E800495

If you look at pic 3 between the Y and C on the neck plate there is a mark on it. It looks like someone tried to drill through the plate but failed. There's two small indentations that go in to the neckplate about half a mm not much at all and does not affect the guitar in any way. It's just cosmetic.

I was double checking the guitar to make sure everything is fine and on the middle squire pickup the magnet underneath is loose but still sticks to the pickup and the pickup works fine. But I think a pickup upgrade would be in order for the middle position.

Thanx again.

===================================================================

Comes with a slightly bent non original trem arm that works perfectly.

Postage to Europe is £30 non insured so will send at buyers risk. This is to keep the cost of postage low.

Last update!!!!!!!!!

Made in Korea at the back of the headstock (top of neck at the back)

The machine heads were taken off by the last owner and replaced with others but these are still the original. The reason I am saying this is that there are tiny little holes by the side of each machine head where the others went. Does not make any difference what so ever, just cosmetic.

The maple of the neck has a very slight but lovely flame to it.

3 ply pickguard WBW.
