If you ever want a guitar that ‘does what it say’s on the tin’ then this Fender AM HSS Strat might well fit the bill – It is a Fender, it is made in the USA, it has the HSS pick-up spec and comes with a classic black finish – A used model from 2003 – Despite it now pushing 16 years of age, the condition is good and clean – A clean set of medium/jumbo frets, that show barely any hint of use – A clean gloss finish that only shows light signs of any wear to the top surface of the gloss finish – Almost superficial light grazes, so no nicks or dings of any consequence whatsoever – Whole guitar weighs 8lbs and 7oz – Includes the deluxe moulded fibre case with the embossed Fender logo – Any eagle eyed potential buyers might note a change to the scratchplate – To compliment the black finish, the previous owner installed a black Fender scratchplate, but otherwise the whole guitar is original – Re-strung, checked and set-up with a set of 10-46 gauge strings, with an easy/slick action
Standard Fender USA electronic package that includes the S1 switch, within the volume pot – The 5 way switch works as you’d expect, but the S1 push/push switch will give you access to a further set of voices – Within the case is a manual that shows and tells you all the additional combinations- Some are more useful than others, but a feature I like is now the option of adding the neck + middle pick-ups together, in series, so effectively it is like having a fat humbucker in the neck position – The HSS pick-up spec on a Strat generally suits the more rock orientated player who requires the fatter, more powerful, output of a bridge humbucker, so think along the lines of classic rock from Thin Lizzy, Bon Jovi etc etc – Whilst the middle + neck single coil pick-up deliver your traditional spanky Strat voice
