(SOLD) Fender Deluxe Stratocaster Butterscotch 2012
Fender Deluxe Strat, Mex 2012, butterscotch finish. This one has turned a bunch of heads in the store already, it's a great looking Strat. The combo of a cheddar-esque butterscotch finish and the tort guard looks very crisp, especially paired with the gold hardware and sixties style decals. This one has had a mini humbucker installed in the bridge position, along with some clever switching to split it to either coil via a three way toggle. It already had the GIlmour-ish S1 switching, so you can engage the bridge pickup in any position... there's a lot of different tones in there. The neck is a comfy slim C and feels slick and quick, it's easy to get around on. You can't go too wrong here, it's a slick Strat!
