Fender American Stratocaster 2001 Surf Pearl - Used
Fender American Stratocaster finished in Surf Pearl and made in 2001.
This Strat started life as an American Fat Strat (HSS) which was a Ltd. Edition run from 2000 until 2003 but somewhere in it's life the pick-ups and pickguard have been changed to accomodate three single-coil Bare Knuckle Pick-ups. The current pickguard is an original Fender White Pearloid and is new.
The colour is rare; called Surf Pearl it's like a metallic Surf Green and is just awesome. A very nice dark Rosewood fingerboard compliments it too.
Overall condition is very good. There are no major marks, chips or dings to speak of but there are 1 or 2 very minor ones.
There's a little fret wear on the usual first few frets but there's no buzz and we feel it needs no attention at the moment. It's currently set-up with 9-42 gauge strings.
Original Fender hard case included.
