I was fortunate enough to have this guitar passed down onto me by a friend who no longer needed it. It arrived in a rough condition with a broken whammy bar (thread was shredded), scarred body (along with dings, nicks and cracks) and a paper staple in bedded permanently into the back. Having said all this though, it still played brilliantly and with a few modifications (new pickups) it began to be a real blast of vintage strat bliss.
