1998 Fender American Roadhouse Stratocaster: For a 25 year old guitar this one is in exceptional condition. Some would rate it as excellent. The Roadhouse Stratocaster is an American Standard Stratocaster factory upgraded with Texas Special pickups and vintage style cloth wiring. It also has an orange drop capacitor. It shows no fret wear and you’ll need a sharp eye to find a ding or dent. There is some very light wear along the rolled edges of the fretboard. Very common these models and usually much worse. The control cavity has been copper shielded to add the quiet of this guitar. Freshly set up with 9 gauge strings and weighing in at 8.0lbs. even, this one not only plays and sounds great, it looks great as well! Ships in the original red label Fender hard shell case.
Please view all of the photos to complete the description. Please feel free to send any questions and I answer them as quickly as possible.
Guitars can experience slight changes during shipping that may require minor adjustments. In addition, I can not predict how you like your guitar set up. Be advised that minor adjustments or a set-up to your liking may be required and the costs associated with these adjustments should be expected.
Please note that I sell predominantly pre-owned guitars. These are not personal instruments so, although they are inspected and tested, it is possible that I might miss a small nick or ding or, in the case of older guitar there may be just to many blems to photograph all of them. I will not be responsible for any shipping charges because you want to send the guitar back because you found a nick or ding that I did not describe or show in a photo.
Under no circumstances will I be responsible for any shipping charges, send or return, unless this item is damaged in shipping.
We offer a 48 hour approval period.
Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions or for an in hand description.
Shipping is via FEDEX or UPS Ground unless you have specific needs which I will try to accommodate.
Generally I ship within 24 hours but I often travel throughout the US to acquire the guitars I offer here so there will be times that shipments may be delayed for a few days. If there is going to be a delay I will notify you.
