Custom-Built Stratocaster style Guitar with a full 1-3/4" thick solid Poplar Body with a gorgeous multicolor "Blue Paisley" finish. Note that every single piece of the build is brand new!
Has a set of Hot Texas Blues Single-Coil Strat Pickups from "The Stratosphere". Staggered pole-pieces, enamel-coated Alnico 5 with wax cloth wires. Output: Neck 6.4K, Middle 6.4K (Reverse Wound/Reverse Polarity), Bridge 7.2K. Stratosphere describes them as their version of Fender Texas Specials but with a slightly more overwound bridge position that delivers amazing midrange chirp, a tight low end and perfect amount of treble response. The beefed-up bridge pickup balances out this amazing set so that all positions play together beautifully.
Built with full-size Alpha 250K Pots, a Grigsby 5-way Pickup Selector and "ALL" the Wiring was done with vintage-style-wax-cloth-wires. All mounted on a beautiful Blue Mirror Pickguard that blends perfectly with the Blue Paisley. Also new White Pickup Covers, Knobs and Switch-Tip. Has a vintage style Chrome Tremolo-Tailpiece with Fender/Fender stamped bent-steel Saddles. Includes the Tremolo Arm.
Neck is a new quality Canadian Rock Maple 25.5" scale Neck with a 22 medium/jumbo Fret Maple Fretboard and a BONE NUT. To further improve playability, the Fretboard has been lightly sanded with a very fine grit, buffed, oiled, then thoroughly buffed again to make the Fretboard very smooth, better than it came from the manufacture and makes for a significant improvement in playability. Frets have been leveled, crowned and polished. Fret ends rounded for a comfortable feel...no sharp ends. Back of the Neck was also lightly sanded with a fine grit, oiled, then meticulously buffed several times. It's extremely smooth, fast and plays fantastic! Has new Fender "F Locking Tuners" and a Chrome Fender "F" Neck Plate with black backing plate.
Strung up with a fresh set of quality D'Addario 10-46 Strings (the Brand most Pros use) and a complete set-up done including: truss-rod relief, action, intonation & pickup heights.
Wonderful playing, sounding, beautiful Blue Paisley Strat and an affordable alternative! Super clean and besides one unfortunate tiny finish chip (that's been touched up) on the Body's lower bass-bout side, it's in Mint Condition. Weighs 8.0 pounds.

* I'm asking $425 obo TRADES CONSIDERED.
** WILLING TO SHIP.

I'm not a store or shop, just a retired Guy that LOVES Guitars and have worked on them as a Hobby for over 30 years. I consider Guitars to be "playable Art", with the playability of the Neck & Set-Up of course being key. I'm not a professional Luthier, but well above an amateur and I'm "extremely meticulous"!

ATTN: If interested, please include your phone# with your email and I'll get back to you ASAP. I'm sorry but due to scammers, bots, etc., any emails without a phone# with be deleted. I'm a trustworthy & honest senior that's sold NUMEROUS Guitars over the years on CL. No concerns or worries here.
Also, I only meet in public locations for the safety of both parties. I have a power inverter and Amp in my vehicle, so Guitar can be played & heard. Also willing to ship. I've shipped literally hundreds of Guitars, so I'm an experienced packer.
