    Here is a sweet USA Hot Rod ‘62 Strat that I picked up in a trade a while ago. Only reason for selling is that the neck is too beefy for my liking. It is by no means a baseball bat, but I like a modern C. The guitar is in good cosmetic condition with signs of wear that give it a vintage vibe. Scuffs and scratches as expected, but nothing off-putting. It is in perfect working order and sounds and plays great. I have it set up with fairly high action, which is my personal preference. Sorry it didn’t come with the trem bar or backplate, and it’s set up as a hardtail with 5 springs (my preference). Obviously this can be changed during set-up. Frets are great, lots left on them and no pitting, or dead spots on the neck.
    Comes with the original case which is in very good condition, but I don’t have the keys. $1800 EMT shipped in a Canada. Happy to text you more pictures of whatever you want. Here are the specs that I am certain of:
    - Slab rosewood board
    - 57/62 pups
    - 9.5” radius
    - bottom tone pot is wired to middle and bridge
    I can’t think of much else you’d want to know but I usually forget stuff, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions. Price includes shipping from Winnipeg by Canada Post insured for total loss only. If you need more expensive shipping with coverage for damage, I’m happy to accommodate but you will need to pay the difference. Our household has had no known exposure to COVID-19, any recent travel, or exposure to anyone who has travelled recently.

    Hi Festus, free bump... I used to come and watch your band back when you were with the “All Night Pounders”. :)
