Original retail price on these was 9 which is reasonable for a quality Korean acoustic-electric with these features.
Any irregularities in the pics are merely reflections; this baby is clean.
I dont know if they all play this nice, but after Martin did his thing, it plays as easily as guitars costing 3X the price. These are getting harder to find and you can expect to pay /each if you can find them.
I consider this an excellent deal for the intermediate guitarist at 9(HOLD-Michael M 7/10). Get this pair, new in the box, for just 5(SOLD-Squire M 7/16).
I originally sold this 13 years ago in as new condition.
My local buddy (moving and moving gear) bought it but only played it only several times so its still in flawless condition, other than oxidation to the trem and pickup covers.
Includes Breedlove gigbag with Velcro neck stabilizer. OFF-HOLD: 2016 Fender American Professional Stratocaster - Sunburst, (front), (back), (headstock), (controls), (case/etc). The latest and greatest version of the American Standard, with some nice enhancements over the previous versions.
Pickups were developed by pickup guru Tim Shaw: these new V-Mod single-coil pickups are voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico magnet types to produce a more powerful tone while still sounding like classic vintage Fender.: If you're not familiar with my site, it's simple, and you'll love it or hate it: (1) This page has gear that has recently arrived; (2) Links at the bottom of this page take you to most of our gear, logically arranged by manufacturer or type, e.g. (3) Lastly, my contains a lot of gear that hasn't made it back to the proper pages yet and is sort of in limbo until I move it.It's not a fancy site but it remains unchanged since '98 so I figure, "if it ain't broke - don't fix it." All guitars and other gear have pictures.Just click on any underlined text and it should open a picture; if you move your cursor over the pic and there's a magnifying glass displayed instead of your cursor, click the pic and it will expand it to larger size.With its vintage Hilo'Tron single coil pickups, "Rocking" bar bridge, Gretsch Bigsby B6C Vibrato tailpiece, and simulated F holes, this quality thinline has all the features of the original 60's model.It has an excellent tone, both acoustically and plugged in and is capable of covering a variety of applications.
