Condition was better than described. All five pickups sounded great. Shipping was amazing. Unfortunately this guitar needed a proper set up and could not stay in tune no matter what I tried. The tremolo system did not settle like I'm use to and the trem arm didn't fit. Weird. I've been playing for 40 years and owned probably 40 Strats. This one was was off in my opinion. Sam Ash took great care of my return and truly professional through the entire process. Will look forward to doing business the Sam Ash in the near future.
