Fender VG Stratocaster Sunburst 2007 USA w/ Fender Hard Shell Case
WILL ONLY SHIP WITHIN CANADA DUE TO ROSEWOOD
Rare guitar, only made for a couple years by Fender. From 2007-2009 for the USA models like this one.
Near mint condition, no scratches or dings. Just recieved a pro-setup from our resident luthier and the guitar plays low with no buzz. All the electronics and tremolo work great. Straight neck, responsive truss, clean electronics, almost zero fretwear. One tiny mark in the front of the body in the finish you can only see when held up to the light (hard to photograph) Guitar plays beautifully, and all the options with different tuning and sounds, are incredible. As with all our items this will be professionally packed and ship ASAP with full tracking and insurance.
Description from Fender: Lurking beneath its classic Strat exterior are 37 sounds based on Strat, Tele, humbucker Strat and acoustic, as well as 6 tunings, but the aesthetic and cosmetic of the Strat remains intact. Even better, the VG Stratocaster delivers level, balanced tone and volume across all these remarkable functions, so that you won’t need to continually readjust amp settings with each change in guitar sound.
No unique hardware necessary to use the VG Strat guitar: no special 13-pin or USB cables, no power supply or input box. It plugs in and plays like any electric guitar. All you’ll notice visually are 2 additional knobs on the VG Strat’s pickguard, plus a small LED and an inconspicuous Roland® GK bridge pickup. The 2 additional knobs are a Mode Control knob and a Tuning Function knob.
The Mode Control Knob between a Virtual version of the Ash bodied Strat (for use of the tuning function), a virtual Telecaster, virtual 2-humbucker Strat, and an assortment of 5 acoustics, from Dreadnought to Resonator. The 5-way blade switch switches you between sounds in the modeling modes just like on a regular guitar.
Tune function rotary control lets you choose between Normal ” regular tuning, Drop D, Open G, DADGAD, Baritone/Low B, and 12 string. The tuning function does not work in Normal mode when circuit is bypassed. Tuning function is also relative ” if you tune down to E flat, all of these tunings will transpose down a half step. Since guitarists don’t have to turn a single tuning key, a major benefit of all these instant tuning changes is that the string tension remains the same and the guitar itself feels the same.
Fender’s VG Stratocaster is the result of a 10-year research and design partnership between Fender and music technology pioneer Roland Corporation. The VG’s development followed a commitment to “The Complex Art of Keeping It Simple.” Developers spent time and great effort working out intricate details so that you can just plug in and play. Their goal: a balance of usability and tech ” the more functionality added to an instrument, the more complex it becomes. Fender kept it pared down so it could really be used in a live setting. They stayed with Fender sounds ” Strat®, Tele®, Humbucking pickups and acoustics.
No unique hardware is necessary to use the VG Strat guitar: no special 13-pin or USB cables, no power supply or input box. It plugs in and plays like any electric guitar, and no phonebook sized manual is necessary ” it is built for 5 minute mastery, and is easy to use and understand.
