Fender American Standard HSS 50th Anniversary in Lake Placid Blue finish made in 1996 with Hardshell Case (modified). 

This guitar features a solid alder body, maple neck and fretboard. Equipped with Fender Texas Special single coils in the neck and middle position, a Seymour Duncan Pearly gates humbucker in bridge. Controlled by a master volume, 2-tone controls and 5-way blade switch. The 25.5” scale length neck has black dot inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets with a ‘Modern C’ shape neck profile. The hardware is comprised of Fender Deluxe die cast sealed tuning machines, a roller nut, Fender Deluxe 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge, and white top-hat knobs on a 3-ply crushed white celluloid-black-white pickguard.

This guitar was modified before we got it, it started its life as a SSS setup with a synthetic bone nut. the pick guard, and pickups were changed along with the nut. The nut job does not look great and is little high, this is the main reason we are only listing this in good condition and AS IS. It does have a couple dings still. The nut has been inspected by our luthier and could be replaced/ done right, it is still absolutely playable and set up with the nut in its current configuration. We are selling it at lower price to make up for this (see pics)

Guitar is freshly setup and restrung with 10-46 strings and includes Gator hard shell abs case.
