Even though I believe my Deluxe Strat is a beautiful guitar, I gave it up to fund a beautiful Heritage, but the funds also came with this. 



This is a 1996 Fender Tex-Mex Strat.  Vintage style tuners and tremolo, thicker C profile neck, Tex-Mex pickups, with a Fender HSC.  This is another used but not abused.  Only one finish problem on the guitar where a previous owner dropped it on something sharp and took a round pencil eraser sized hole in the finish on the edge by the bottom of the pickguard.  Otherwise a little fret polish and new strings, this guitar will be awesome!
