2001 USA Fender Deluxe Stratocaster in Muncie, IN for $500

This seller is offering what appears to me to be a 2001 Fender Deluxe Stratocaster. The difference between the Deluxe model and the "American Standard" model in 2001 was the abalone fret dot inlays (which you can see clearly in his photos) and Sperzel locking tuners as well as SCN or "virtual noiseless pickups."  The Deluxes also have a more carefully machined fretboard that includes rolled edges on the frets that give it a nice broken in smooth playing feel - something most vintage gear players look for in a guitar. 

Not everyone is a fan of the SCN pickups - most vintage gear players embrace the buzz and hum of an old single coil since it lets the pickup breathe and respond instantly to subtle changes in the magnetic fields.  But this is purely a matter of personal taste.   Many professionals can't stand any kind of buzz of hum in a guitar.

condition: excellent
I am selling my lightly used American Corona California Custom made 2001 issued Fender Stratocaster. The reason I am selling is because I rarely play the Fender. It is an excellent guitar, in excellent condition, always stored in the hardshell case which is included in the sale. Guitar comes with original white face plate and a black face plate. If you have any question or can offer any cash, please send an email to me. I will be in town until Sunday 5/11, then I am moving out of state. 1 original owner, smoke free environment, selling due to relocation and not playing the instrument. Serious inquires only, please no major low offers, no trades either.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL READERS

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
