Here is a super fine Fender Japan '54 Strat from 1999. I believe this is some kind of DMC model that has had a serious pup upgrade to Van Zandts. This is now one hell of a nice strat.Condition is very close to mint. ome pick marks on the guard and maybe a teensy tiny blem on the rest. I will call it 96% to be very safe.Plays and sounds great as you might expect.Comes in a gig bag, probably original.We have been in business for years and have sold thousands of high end guitars that are all shipped internationally.Will be super well packed to survive just about anything. Don't trust anyone else to get something like this to you safely... For the record, we have shipped over 5000 guitars internationally. No one does it better. You might get a better price from an amateur desperate for cash...but will your guitar make it alive?
See our response and buy with confidence.
You MUST MUST MUSTread all fine print and Q&Abelow the pictures!! I can NOT stress this enough!!!PAYMENT,INSURANCE andCUSTOMS info and terms!!
We include a great many pictures in our listings so the buyer can see EXACTLY what they are getting. Our guitars are as described so please look carefully at the pictures.Often something that looks like a flaw is dust or a reflection. Also keep in mind that close up pictures can make a tiny flaw look much worse and evencompletely normal things look strange. When was the last time you staredat a guitar from 3 inches away?All usedguitars will look worse with close up pictures. Our new guitars are indeed new so if you see something strange it is almost certainly not really there. If you have questions ask. These guitars pretty much always look MUCH better in real life!!! We recommend hitting the F11 button before viewing the pictures for full
cost is $130 tojust about anywhere by EMS JapanPost(if you are in
South America or Africa please contact for a qoute as rates are more
expensive).KEEP IN MIND, while your cost is $130.... our ACTUAL COST isusually much more!!!EMS is the only method we use.You don't need to worry about shipping from Japan!!! Seeour responses!! Often, to the USA, they are door to door in 72 hours! We firmly believe that EMS JapanPost is much safer and faster than UPS or FedEx.Less time in transit means less chance of damage!If your guitar comes with a gigbag do NOT worry as we have NEVER had shipping damage on a guitar that was not in case nad we have shippd thousands!!Case-less
guitars might actually be safer than a guitar in a case because there
is more room for padding and the added mass of a case often does more
damage than it prevents!!We
take packing very seriously and I estimate chances of loss or
seriousdamage at less than 1 in 1000.Tracking information will be sent
by messages within 12 hours of shipping. We ship at least 2 days a
week, usuallyTuesday and Friday.
