Nothing like a good Strat! For your consideration a 2008 Fender Classic Series 50’s Stratocaster in Daphne Blue! Fender did a great job with these made in Mexico Classic Series. Everyone wishes they could have a 50s Strat these MIM are a great way to get some 50s vibe goin. Great feel and playability. The cool thing about this particular MIM Strat is some one upgraded all the electronics to Custom Shop Pickups!

What a great Strat! Looks amazing with its Daphne Blue finish and gold hard ware. Love a Maple neck with a good 50’s V. Tons of life left in the frets. Cant go wrong with a set of Custom Shop pick ups! Classic Stratocaster tone for days. Great weight to the body, nice resonance. Fender MIM really did a great job with these necks and bodies, some one took it to the next level by upgrading the electronics and hardware!
