Description

GIANT 12 FOOT FENDER STRATOCASTER REPLICA

This giant 12 foot replica Fender Strat is truly a "one of a kind". Manufactured out of solid fibreglass, it was made in the Waikato during the glory days of rock music in the early 90's and was an icon outside our Weirs Music store in Hamilton for 20+ years. Finished in a traditional 3 tone sunburst, it features a rosewood fretboard, 24 frets (very rare for a Strat) and huge vintage single coil pickups. She has recently been restrung using the finest quality rope, had the finish touched up and is ready to rock, with the exception of one missing machine-head and whammy bar. I understand replacement tuners, whammy bar and a case are available from "BFG's guitars" if needed. Suitable for the man cave, big band music or any Fender enthusiast, this is the ultimate addition to your guitar collection, sure to dwarf all others.

Mearuring over 3.5m in length and weighing 80+kgs it must be collected during business hours from Tauranga CBD.

All proceeds from the sale of this item will probably be spent at the Omokoroa Boat Club and various bars around Tauranga

    The paint condition is good, it was repainted about 6 years ago, then has been in storage for the last 4 years, it does (like a lot of us) look better from a distance though,baycitymusic(53)• Friday, 17 May 2019
