This is a finish you don't come across every day - Shoreline Gold.

More specifically, it is on a Fender American Vintage Reissue '62 Stratocaster model dated from 1997. The guitar is in good condition for its age, although there a number of marks to note. These include:

  • Some indentations and grazing to the edge of the body at the body at the bottom of the guitar. 
  • Some bucklerash on the back
  • A minor indentation to the back of the neck at the 3rd fret
  • Tarnishing to the bridge and some of the machine heads - Minor.

A brand new Seymour Duncan SSL-1 pickup was also fitted to the bridge of the guitar. 

All-in-all, this is still a nice playing guitar for those after a vintage style Stratocaster, but don't want to break in to the price point of Fender's Custom Shop. The instrument has a distinctly vintage feel and tone to it due to its 7.25'' radius fingerboard. Whilst the frets are in excellent condition considering the guitars 20+ year age, please keep in the mind the vintage nature of the frets and radius will lead to minor note choking towards the higher end of the fingerboard when performing particularly large bends, though whole-tone bends will ring out as normal.

The guitar still includes its original hard case and tremolo arm, though no other documents are present. The case is also showing some signs of wear to the tweed outer casing, but is still fully functional.
