All three feature this stunning Wildwood finish & this one has been professionally set up, so it's ready for action straight out of the case.

Fender open-back tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 30" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Why We Love Fender
It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
