2008 Fender Standard Stratocaster "Upgrade" w/ Custom Mods

This guitar started out life as a new 2008 MIM Fender Standard Stratocaster HSS (Upgrade Edition - Purchased through American Musical Supply for $549.99). Numerous parts were swapped to take it where it is today. The color is a very slick (and discontinued) "chrome red".

The Original rosewood neck was replaced with an aftermarket maple neck (Fender licensed neck with large 70s style headstock and logo). Fender "stamped" cast/sealed machine heads and American string trees on the headstock as well. The nut has been perma-bonded to the neck and has been leveled for low action.

Other upgrades installed after purchase include the Dimarzio "Tone Zone S" pickup in the bridge position (arguably the best sounding strat-sized humbucker available), and a 500k USA pot installed on the volume control (better high end response). The internal wiring is solid and there are no issues with the electronics or diodes, etc.

The body is in absolutely perfect condition and shows no signs of wear. There is one small nic on the back of the headstock that is so small it doesn't even appear in any of the photos I've tried to take of it. The guitar plays perfectly and has served me well in the home studio for about 6 months now, but I need to let it go.

Comes with Fender standard gig bag.
Price is $500 or best offer (no low-ballers, please).
Feel free to message me with any questions you may have. Thanks.
