Summary: Since 1954, the Stratocaster has been a Holy Grail model that many guitarists aspire to own one day, taking their place beside Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Eric Johnson and John Frusciante. Build quality, tone, and playability are all great with the Mexican Strat. It requires a true connoisseur to tell it apart from its American brother. This model is also a favorite for modding, often by swapping out pickups and pots. This Mexican Stratocaster is a special one. It has a unique but beautiful sunburst finish and a very dark rosewood fingerboard. The wood grain comes through the finish and has a very distinctive look. It feels great in your hands and sounds amazing.

Body: Solid, double cutaway, sunburst gloss finish.

Neck: Maple with a beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard, white dot inlays, 25.5” scale length, 1.650” nut width.

Pickups/Hardware: 3 single coil pickups, double Fender stamped saddles, Fender six-in-line tuning pegs, master volume/two tone knobs, 5-way pickup selector, 21 frets, white 3-ply pickguard.

Cosmetics: This guitar has a few dings (See Photos) on the top of the body. There is a little crack in the finish in the neck pocket, but the guitar is structurally sound. The back of the neck is in great shape. It has a birdseye style look to the grain of the wood. The frets are in good shape and still have life. There are some divots on the first nine frets. Overall, this guitar is in great shape and is a real player’s guitar.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable.

Weight: 7 lbs., 13 oz.
