Fender / Stratocaster / 1988 / Translucent Blond Over Ash/gold Hdwr / Guitar For Sale

While these were sold by Fender Corona as a special line of their '62 Reissues in reality the combination of a Rosewood board and see through blond over highly grained ash with gold parts ... aka a "Mary Kaye" was ONLY originally produced in late 1959 early 1960 so it should be called a '59 Mary Kaye. The model got it's name when Fender endorsee Mary Kaye (see pic) chose this combination and really the earliest point we see gold hardware show up on a Strat. This guitar has some set of cajones on it. Ash bodies tend to be a little meatier and that is a part of that sound. 100% original baring the neck date 4/12/1988 This one is right at 9+1/4 lbs and has a great c shaped neck. There weren't many made and mostly sold in sets with a maple board as a special offer. The only minimal wear is it has a little discoloration as many vintage white or blond guitars do but ONLY on the butt end and 1 small chip in the neck treble side cutaway. Overall in excellent + shape! Comes with the orig tweed case.

Shipping: Buyer pays shipping. Shipping will be determined on a case by case basis so as to include size, weight, distance, insured amount and method requested. Shipping is paid by customer both ways on any returns.

Returns: All parties buying through the mail or offsite are allowed a 24 hour approval/inspection period on ALL guitars, unless discussed otherwise, to make sure they are keeping their purchase (but not amps to keep shipping delicate amps back and forth to a minimum and not on parts either ... too many guys doing "switcharoo's" or wrecking them trying to install them and then trying to send them back ... sorry ... you have to reap the behavior of so many others). Buyer pays shipping. Payments must be received within 5 working days of anything placed on HOLD. When you receive the guitar your 24 hour return includes 1 day to receive it and approve or not and you must contact me. Don't just put it in the mail ..... and 2 extra days (72 hours total time) to resend it and I require a tracking number back from the customer the day of shipping and gladly supply the same to customer upon request and orig sale. I do strictly adhere to these rules. I don't mean to sound tough here but you would be amazed at the liberties taken in recent past! Thanks for your understanding and adherence. ALL Outside the USA sales are final due to extended "visits" through customs and some countries laxed attitude about shipping on time.
