This guitar is well desired by the Fender Community. What makes it so special is the pickup combination! It comes stock with the famous Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Humbucker in the bridge position as well as Texas Specials in the neck and middle positions.
The name is everything, "Lonestar Strat!"
Texas musicians prefer this guitar over others for its hot-rodded country/classic rock lead tone! The neck position pickup rings out sweet blues tone for days! Perfect for that "Pride & Joy" Stevie Ray Vaughan type of sound!
It comes with the original Fender hardshell case. The guitar is in very good condition considering it is 20 years old and has been played. There is fret wear, but no buzzing or dead frets. Gave this one a good test drive and all hardware & electronics are in fantastic shape! No belt rash/scratches! Buy it and take it straight to your neighborhood blues jam!
Fender specs are detailed below.
Fender's Lonestar Strat offers players classic Fender looks and tones but the added versatility of a humbucker. Great for blues and hard rock, the Lonestar has been the choice of many players. The American Lonestars were discontinued years ago and have been popular among musicians. Not to be confused with the recent imported guitars, this Lonestar is 100% Made in the USA. Great American made quality and specs. The body is alder for good tone. The 25.5 inch scale maple neck features a 9.5 inch radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. A factory Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbucker teams up with a hot Texas Special single coil in the middle and neck for a variety of sounds. A 2 point trem offers smooth whammy action while sealed tuners keep it rock solid. This example is finished in a cool aqua/Teal color and is set off by a pearloid pickguard. A great guitar for the gigging player!
The Lonestar Strat is made for the player. Tons of versatility form the HSS pickup arrangement. The neck is ready for the blues and rock player thanks to some big frets and a flat radius. Bends are easy and playability is excellent. The neck is straight and the action is low on this one. The pickups sound great and everything works as it should.
Fender no longer makes an American Lonestar. A real pity as these were great and very versatile instruments in the late '90s-early 2000s. The closest thing out there is an American Standard HSS which will run you upwards of $1150 in the superstores. A very nice guitar but these don't come from the factory with the versatile Duncan/Texas Special pickup combo that many players crave. Don't miss out on this Texas Legend!
