Wow, what a gorgeous Strat! The Set Neck Strats were basically a Custom Shop step above the well regarded Ultra models. All of the features of those well regarded Golden Era Custom Shop models with some other top notch features.
The body is made of solid Honduran mahogany for great warm tone. The 25.5 inch scale maple neck is glued into the body (not a bolt on!) and features an ebony fingerboard with 22 frets. A red Lace Sensor humbucker at the bridge teams with a gold in the middle and a blue at the neck. The 5 way switch works with a coil tap for a variety of tones. A Fender 2 point trem teams with a wilkinson nut and locking tuners for rock solid performance. The finish is a gorgeous Quilt maple that really accentuates the gorgeous wood and nickel hard-ware. Top notch quality on a great feeling and sounding guitar!
The action is low, the frets are still in great shape and the neck is straight. The Lace Sensor pickups deliver a variety of tones. A Killer guitar. This is a Minter. Collector owned, it has seen little playtime since 1995 when imported from the states. It shows No noticeable playwear. No marks/dents/impressions, very clean indeed. Perhaps the nicest example you are likely to find for this series. Super duper Clean. Comes in its original Old school G&G Fender hard shell case with a pile of candy. Built by the original builder John Page!
This is a Amazing guitar for a great price. and if you know your guitars you know that the pieces created by Fender master luthier john Page are going up quickly in price and are often between £4'000-10'000. If you want a new set neck Strat, you have to order a Masterbuilt model from the Custom Shop. Big, big money. Here's one for an affordable price which is extremely rare and will make a secure investmant for the future.
