Up for sale is my flawless Select Channel-Bound Stratocaster. Fender did a limited-run of these last year. They were hard to find but I managed to score a beauty. Unfortunately, my computer died and now I need to "liberate" some funds to buy another one.

This guitar is in pristine condition. There's not a mark on it and it plays beautifully, with low, even action and wonderful tone from all of the pickup positions. The S-S-H setup gives you great variety, from classic Fender glass to the powerful crush of the humbucker. I'll let Fender describe the model in detail:

The highly acclaimed Fender Select series introduces an all-new lineup for 2013. These finely crafted guitars and basses put decades of Fender expertise on display, with elegant features and design options for discerning musicians everywhere. Experience the latest figured tops, beautiful finishes, choice tone woods, figured and quartersawn maple necks with compound-radius fingerboards, an innovative new "inlaid" fingerboard design on two of the models, specially voiced pickups, and several new first-rate features that mark Fender's top-line best as remarkable instruments.

The 2014 edition of the Fender Select Stratocaster HSS ups the ante on its 2012 predecessor with several striking new features. First among these is the "channel-bound" rosewood fingerboard, a brand-new Fender innovation in which the compound-radius (9.5"-14") rosewood fingerboard is "inlaid" into the thick modern "C"-shaped maple neck. In addition to creating a stylish new look, it imparts an amazingly comfortable fretting-hand feel in which both edges are pleasingly rounded, with no side seam between neck and fingerboard.

The Fender Select Stratocaster HSS also has a beautiful flame maple-top body with traditional contours. The body has an elegant hand-stained Tobacco Sunburst finish with a gloss lacquer topcoat, and the neck has a hand-rubbed oil finish and a comfortable contoured heel. Other premium features include Fender Select Stratocaster single-coil neck and middle pickups, a full-throated Twin-Head humbucking bridge pickup, five-way switching, three-ply parchment pickguard, aged white control knobs, 21 medium jumbo frets, Bi-Flex truss rod system, two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with vintage-style bent steel saddles, deluxe staggered locking tuners and Fender Select headstock medallion.
