    Additional detail:
    I have owned this guitar for 14 years and it has pretty much been my number one go to guitar for all that time, even when I was lucky enough to have some other far more illustrious high end guitars to chose from to play. It is a wonderful guitar to play and that makes this a very reluctant sale. The guitar was, relic/distressed wise, pretty much as you see it now when I brought it. It was original set up as a standard stratocaster with the upgraded noiseless singles coils in all 3 positions & original standard Fender style trem and tuners etc. 4 years ago I finally got round to having the guitar professionally upgraded with all new genuine Fender parts (Tuners, Trem, Pots) whilst keeping the original pickguard and control knobs etc. Then in 2016 I had it professionally worked on again to add the DiMarzio Super Distortion in the bridge, Genuine Fender HSS pickguard and the German Made Schaller Floyd Rose.

    With regards to the origin of the guitar I have been told by 3 separate and well know & trusted luther's that they believe the guitar to be an early 80's late 70's Japanese Lawsuit Stratocaster based on the original parts (when they were on the guitar), the construction and the neck profile & truss rod installation. If you want further details please feel free to contact me and I will provide as much info as I can for you. However the guitar has no identifying marks such as a serial number and I have no paper work to prove 100% this is a Japanese lawsuit Stratocaster, but the valued opinion of 3 trusted guitar specialists, which if required I can provide contact details for. (If any strat experts on here can provide me any details on this guitar's history based on the pics please let me know)

    Many thanks for your interest
    Cheers
