For your consideration, G&L Tribute Series Legacy with Brazilian Cherry Fretboard.

I bought it new about 6 or 7 years ago and have rarely played it. It's a great guitar but is just setting in its case. As a metal musician, I never vibed with it completely. I prefer Jacksons, Charvels, and Ibenazes.

G&L is Leo Fender's company after breaking with Fender. The guitar is essentially a Stratocaster. It's made by the same people and has the same specs (25.5" scale, 22 frets, and SSS pick-up configuration). However, it feels heavier and somewhat bigger. It's certainly it's own vibe. The quality exceeds the price point and I can see it becoming an unintentional retro-doom metal-ish guitar like the old Peaveys. However, the guitar is clearly intended for blues and rock.

It has one or two small dings barely noticeable above the instrument cable jack. When I bought it new, it came to me with one of the tuners without a back casing (see pics). Also, the guitar arrived missing a small set screw that holds the vibrato bar in place (see pic). The vibrato bar is included.

The guitar may be set up too low for your liking but it plays very well. I project that it is lower than the normal set-ups for similar instruments as, again, I play mostly metal. The guitar includes a hardshell off-brand case and maroon strap. The case is used and shows wear but is completely functioning.

Let me know if you have any questions.
