Summary: Here we have the Fender Lonestar Strat, first
year of production. This iteration of
the Stratocaster featured an Alder body, a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Plus
humbucker and two single coil Texas Special pickups. Made in California and ships in its original
vintage style Fender hard shell case.
Body: This guitar features an alder body with a
beautiful shoreline gold finish and a 3 ply w/b/w pearloid pickguard.
Neck: The neck feels
amazing! It is a one piece maple neck with
25.5 inch scale, a 9.5 inch radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo
frets. The neck is bolt-on and features
a neck tilt screw.
Pickups/Hardware: This is such a
versatile instrument, it comes stock with the famous Seymour Duncan “Pearly
Gates plus” Humbucker in the bridge position and Fender “Texas Special” in the
neck and middle position. The tuners are Fender closed backs, steel saddles,
perfectly functioning vibrato unit and bar, 1 volume, 2 tones, 5 way switch and
2 string trees.
Cosmetics: The finish on this Strat in in immaculate
shape. There are no major dents, dings,
cracks or scratches no mention. Only a
few very light scratches on the back of the body, small crack in the humbucker
cover, minor fretwear and one ding in the fretboard.
Playability: This Strat really is a special instrument. It plays like none other and sounds
incredible. The neck is straight, the
action is low and it has a special resonance when you play it that really
vibrates throughout the whole body. The
vibrato unit and bar work flawlessly smooth and stays in tune with no issue.
Strat buttons look like replacements.
Weight: 8 lbs, 2 oz.
Case: This Lonestar Strat ships in its original
vintage style Fender hardshell case, fully packed, padded and insured!
