Custom Mjt Relic Stratocaster - Dark Tobacco Burst, Solid, Fender, Hard CaseCustom Mjt Relic Stratocaster - Dark Tobacco Burst, Solid, Fender, Hard Case

This is a custom MJT (Mark Jenny Tele) guitar that was set up & sold by ebay user eg-pap2008 earlier this year of 2014. Of all the guitars I have played, this one is remarkable. It has a fatter or “full C” neck, like vintage guitars, and medium frets, also like vintage, rather than medium jumbo. I really, REALLY love both of these features. It feels better and for me that means it plays & sounds better. It is extremely nice, play ability and rings nicely without being plugged in. Plugged in of course it takes off and sounds even better. It is undoubtedly among the most beautiful guitars I have ever laid eyes on or had the pleasure to own. The ONLY reason I am selling it is because, well I actually got it to replace a guitar, which I recently re-acquired, and I used bill me later and I haven’t paid any of it off. So I can’t be in this debt right now, I’m trying to get my own place and stuff and, while it is really, REALLY cool to have two guitars that are very similar in look, feel and play ability, (to say, switch to one on stage if I broke a string or for a different tuning), I just can’t afford it right now. Let me put it to you this way though….this guitar is so, SO close to the guitar I was trying to replace, and that would be an American Vintage Reissue Strat…from 85. So I feel stupid for even selling a guitar that is in this caliber. But, as I said, as cool as it would be to have them both, it’s silly for me at this point because I need the money. I have an 862 dollar bill me later tab to pay by next month if I don’t want any interest, haha. Obviously since I haven’t owned it long (less than 6 months), the guitar is much in the same condition as when I got it. I will upload more detailed pictures soon, tomorrow probably. Bottom line, I was hearing really really great things about MJT – decided to give the MJT guitars a shot – was very, pleasantly surprised, not disappointed at all, will buy from MJT again — this guitar plays like a dream and looks like a babe haha. The winning bidder will receive this guitar in a hard case. Thank You for viewing and may the best bid win!
