FS Fender Ultra Stratocaster

Bought this new in April 2021, and had it professionally setup with low action. Being a Gibson player before, the minute I played this through the Axe Fx III I was blown away. Everything from the clean chimes of the Fender amp models to incredible bold screaming tones with the high gain amps, I knew this was the guitar meant for me. A few weeks ago, I upgraded to the Ultra Luxe 2021 version of this guitar just to get the very latest model of the Ultra series. Can't describe how beautiful this guitar sings, it is wonderful. In almost new condition, with no major flaws or major usage wear. I take excellent care with my guitars and have treated this one like my baby. Noiseless pickups, locking tuners, 2 point bridge and tremolo bar, bone nut. Fender.com has full details of this model. Specially molded hard-shell case. Note in the specs, these guitars ship from Fender with .09-.42 strings and play effortlessly and incredible bending sensitivity. Of course, could be changed to any gauge strings as Strats allow you to change string height individually with ease and easy intonation adjustment.
Retails for 1899.99. I'm asking $1700, plus I will pay for shipping to the Continental US. Hard to find, back-ordered on Guitar Center, Fender.com and Sweetwater websites and long waiting lists.

Interesting. I did the same series of purchases, except maple neck versions. I love both guitars though, can't part with either of them.
I'm sure you'll find a buyer.
 
Sam, thanks for your reply. Yes, these instruments are so easy to fall in love with that one leads to the other. :) I can't believe the beauty that these things take on high gain amps - it's like fire. I like the way they hug the body with the new curves, and so light - yet with such great sustain.
