Fender American Stnd Stratocaster - 1993 with TBX tone control and gold hardware
This Fender Amercian Standard Stratocaster is a true vintage closet classic.
This is a 1993 model featuring upgraded electronics (TBX tone control), Rosewood fingerboard, Maple neck with skunk stripe, micro tilt neck adjustment, gold hardware, tusk nut and dual string trees.
It is a beautiful, aged Teal colour that looks even better in person and is in excellent condition for it's age. Rarely played which is evident from the minimal fret wear and overall end to end condition of this guitar - which still shows the original plastic on the rear bridge cover! We've left this on to demonstrate how little this has been played but if you would like this removed we are happy to do so as part of our complimentary detailing process.
90's made American Stratocasters are renowned for their quality. Post CBS's sale of Fender in 1985 the new owners made a concerted effort to signficantly improve the consistency of their quality control and released stunning guitars that launched the next phase of this iconic companies history.
The overall condition of this awesome guitar is EXCELLENT.
Included with this sale is a genuine, moulded Fender hard case also in excellent condition.
Details, post inspection and set up, as follows;
NECK: 95% fret life. Rosewood board oiled and frets polished. Not a blemish to be seen after detailing. Rear of neck is in excelllent overall condition. It shows some signs of fading on the skunk stripe and there are 3 very minor indents adjacent to the 3rd, 10th and 11th frets. Hardly noticeable, especially when playing, but something we always make note of in our descriptions.
BODY Front: Is in immaculate condition for it's age with only very minor signs of being played. All chrome hardware polished and tested. There are two small dents (not chips) present on the upper side. One near the top strap button and two on the bottom adjacent to the front arm contour.
BODY Rear: Excellent. No buckle rash, dings or chips present. There are three, barely visible scratches located near the top strap button. Also evident is the original plastic on the rear bridge plate (which can be removed).
HEADSTOCK; There are some minor indents visible on the top of the headstock and two small scratches on the front near the A and D tuning pegs. Otherwise immaculate. Gold, modern tuners
ELECTRONICS; All tested and checked. Perfect working order
Fender.com describes their TBX tone control—which stands for “Treble Bass Expander”—as follows:
“This detented, stacked 250k/1 Meg control enhances your tonal palette without the use of a battery. From 0 to 5, the TBX is your standard tone control, but once you pass 5 you start to decrease the resistance, which allows more bass, treble, presence and output to flow to your amp."
A lot of people think of the TBX tone control as a treble boost, but that’s not quite accurate. The TBX control actually consists of a custom dual-ganged pot (aka a “stacked” or “stereo” pot), a resistor, and a capacitor that cuts the bass and treble out of the circuit, depending on which way you turn the knob. This can add some new dimension to your solo parts, especially if you are going for those bright, crystal clear Jeff Beck tones.
