Partscaster ST-style Relic Fiesta Red c2016
Partscaster Strat, fiesta red relic, made around 2016. This little guy has some quality guts and plays really nicely. The neck is a slick modern C profile by Mighty Mite, attached onto a generic but reasonable quality body. The hardware is sturdy, including some genuine Fender tuners, and the pickups are a tasty slightly overwound set by Nico's Vintage. The tone lends itself well to SRV-style blues playing; there's a sweet balanced growl and chime. The relic red finish won't be to everyone's taste, but it's tastefully done and definitely has a cool aesthetic. Quirky, but fun.

Cosmetic condition notes: relic finish wear. Headstock and neck pretty clean, minor scuffing only. As shown in the pics, the body is a 'relic' style finish, so there's rub wear, chips and dimples and plenty on wood on show under the paint all over the body. Overall: good condition (7/10).
Playing condition notes: Neck is straight, action is low, intonation is good. Frets have very little wear, 8.5/10 for life left. All electronics tested and working properly. Setup with fresh 10/46 strings.
