Vintage 1980s Fender Squier E Series Stratocaster Contemporary Strat Mij - S/s/h For Sale

Vintage 1980s Fender Squier E Series Stratocaster Contemporary Strat Mij - S/s/h

Payment Must be made Using PayPal only, and within 3 days of sale ending. Will only Ship to Lower 48 USA.1980s vintage made-in-Japan Fender Squier "Contemporary" Stratocaster in black with maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. 24 3/4 scale -- a bit shorter than standard, but I have big hands, I bought this guitar in 1987 and played it as my main guitar for most of the late 80s and early 90s. Still has good fret life, and has the micro-tilt 4-bolt neck that allows for great action-setting. This guitars plays very easily -- action is incredibly low and fast. Tremolo system works great too. Has three toggle switches for operating the pickups independently. Basically, they are on/off switches for the neck and middle pickups, while the humbucker in the bridge position has a three-way toggle switch where the middle is off, the top is single-coil, and the bottom is full humbucking. You can select any combination of pickups o/off with this switching system. One global volume and one global tone control -- simple! Non-original tremolo arm, but it fits well. The strap buttons are Schaller strap lock buttons. But, they do not require using the strap lock. Any strap will work. Typical dings and scratches for an older, vintage guitar, but nothing drastic. The neck plate had some engraving that was scratched out with an engraver -- just cosmetic -- see pictures. Neck is arrow-straight and the truss rod works as it should. Original Fender Japan tuners, original graphite nut, and original old-style Fender logo bridge and saddles. This guitar stays in tune! And, it sounds glorious! Just like a strat should, only with the benefit of the humbucker sound too, when chosen!The case is not original to the guitar. It's an older SKB hardshell case that's made for a Strat, but the interior liner has seen better days. I used some painter's tape to hold hte foamy fuzz and fur together. The hard plastic and hte metal hardware are still in good shape, though. And once closed and latched, it's all secure and stable.Guitar is also for sale locally, so the sale could end early if it sells locally. and a $1 starting offer with fast, flat rate $45 shipping to lower 48 USA only. I ONLY ACCEPT PAYPAL PAYMENTS! Will not ship anywhere but the lower 48 USA, please don't ask. PayPal payment required to be made within three days of sale ending.Ask all questions before offerding, as I do not accept returns for any reason. Sold AS IS with no refund.

What I meant to say, but forgot to add, in the first of the item description, is that, "I have big hands...," but the slightly shorter scale it didn't hinder my playing at all. In fact, it wasn't until I was doing a recording with a mobile unit that another musician played it on his tracks and pointed it out to me. And this was in 1997! About ten years after I bought the guitar. Pretty naive at the time, I guess, but just wanted to point out that I didn't notice the scale at all; but others might.

On Aug-01-13 at 08:53:41 PDT, seller added the following information:

Note: A couple of things... The tone cap has been replaced with a better quality one, and I think the on/off switches were changed at some point to better ones; maybe just one or two -- maybe all three(?) can't remember. But, they work as they should and as it did when stock. Also, the strings will need to be replaced. The ones on it are not that bad, but they are older, and two of them are barely wrapped around the string post at the tuner. I would replace them, but the buyer will want their own gauge and brand of strings, etc., so I'll leave it up to the buyer to replace the strings.

On Aug-05-13 at 17:09:27 PDT, seller added the following information:

I forgot to add that when I bought the guitar, used, in 1987, the tremolo bar threads inside the trem block were stripped. Instead of typical re-drilling, steel insert, etc. into the same worn-out hole, I spent the extra time and money and took it to a machine shop where they cut the end section and reversed it by weldeding the section back, but the bottom to the top, then they drilled hte correct diameter hole and made smooth and correct threads into the fresh metal, for a like-new fit. Tremolo arm has been working ever since without a problem. Just thought I'd mention it. It's not noticeable since it's under the trem cover on the back of the guitar, and even with teh cover off, it's hardly noticeable cosmetically. The important thing, is that it was fixed in the best possible way instead of trying to re-use hte old hole. I've done that on other guitars and it seems they inevitably wear out again. This one has lasted and will continue to last.
