She was born 23 years ago in March of 1997, and has been babied. The guitar is a closet queen, in near mint condition, with only a couple of very minor light flaws on the side edge and a few light small scratches beneath the pick-guard on the lower horn. It is exceptionally clean for her age!
The neck is straight with no cracks or repairs… The frets are excellent with their entire life ahead… And the sound is just as sweet as it gets!! Also included is the original Fender hard shell case, which is in great shape despite a stained area on the lid, and even includes the case candy, Fender cable, ash tray bridge cover, and the certificate of authenticity, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is going to be STOKED!!
