For Sale US Masters Natural Wood Custom Strat Style Guitar HD

US Masters vlcsnap-00012solid-body electric guitar - Completely USA made including ALL components, Bill Lawrence pickups (2 single coil and 1 humbucking), five position pickup selector switch featuring coil tap of the humbucking pickup in "position 4", volume and tone control knobs are rubberized for easy gripping even with sweaty hands, Wilkinson tremelo system (best in its class) with friction fit whammy bar, pau ferrau extra-thick fretboard, Sperzel locking tuning heads, bolt on birdseye maple neck with sculptured heel block for easy access to the upper frets, Australian lacewood single-piece double-cutaway body, special "ultra slippery" nut material exclusive to US Masters guitars (at least at the time - don't know about now), serial  number below A225. This is one of the very earliest guitars produced by US Masters before they decided to go into mass production. This is clearly a VERY nice

professional quality guitar. Feels and looks like a custom Strat clone. There is a "ding" in the headstock but it does not affect the playability at all.

The whammy system can stand some serious "abuse" before it goes out of tune - the only thing better for that is the Floyd Rose system. The original hardshell case is included and is in very good condition. The owner is selling it to defray the cost of a professional camera. Asking $999. Made in Wisconsin!
