It's only one of 123,432, give or take, made.. so after those there are no more... better hurry ..:p
Kind of limited edition with the benefit of hindsight?
Its rare to find someone with large enough stones to ask that much for a POS like that.
‘Scuse me for asking but, description aside, why is a reasonable US Strat now a POS?

So, does any Strat that’s black get to be called “Blackie”? With 3-ply 11-hole pickguard? And, no other reference to the genuine Blackie?

Oh and this:
For this reason, it’s been used a fair bit for gigging so has some marks to body. A little wear to tone knobs etc as expected but I feel this all adds to character and the storyline of the guitar. The back plate was removed for a vintage feel (easily replaced if required)
And this:
One larger paint chip on underside as seen in pics. The neck is in great shape. Frets are good. As mentioned, it’s set up professionally so plays super slick with no buzzing issues. A true players guitar.
A shame to see her go. Needs must. (not sure what a Must is)


Can courier within Uk 🇬🇧

I only use a trusted courier 🚚(Good to know they are trusted, I would hate for you to choose Uncle Ernie)

You can name your guitar anything you'd like.

Though I'd be hesitant to refer to my Olympic White Strat as "Whitey"

"The busys", LMAO. My partner calls them that and she's a Brummie. But here in Scotland you mean the "Polis" surely laddie! 🤣.
Yeah, I'm actually a Manc, living in Brum. I'll be honest, I don't know what the locals call 'em, but based on their physical condition, 'plod' would be apt, since that's about top speed for them.

Hmmmm. This is a photo of my 1983 Emerald Green Stratocaster but I have one in black too, same year, with chrome instead of gold parts. Noiseless pickups and buttons instead of a slide pickup changer = 7 sounds.

Now, that makes it a rare guitar. Not too many of these about for sale these days either.

Trust me, when these were made the owners of Fender at that time were really trying hard to make a very good guitar.

Classic ‘pump & dump’…! I think the only thing that’s rare ~ is the seller 😲
‘Pump and dump’…………..sounds like an enema
well considering the asking price, it's probably a Piece of petrified Dinosaur shi* ..
A POS is a POS regardless of the asking price. I think you’re meaning ‘not good value’, it doesn’t look to be too bad as a guitar.
