    They don't make them like these anymore.
    This is a series that used to be the very high end Super strat built by Yamaha.

    Features:
    *Lightweight high quality alder body (The guitar weighs 7 pounds 6 oz)
    *Premium maple neck - very light finish for best playing comfort. VERY high grade piece with some discrete birdseye
    *Lush rosewood fretboard in perfect condition
    *Medium jumbo frets (have almost NO wear - 99% condition)
    *Excellent quality double-locking tremolo. Even if less famous, those rivaled the best Ibanez trems at the time.
    *Extremely versatile HSH pickup configuration

    Plays great and sounds AMAZING. In fact it easily plays like a 1500$ or 2000$ guitar. The tonal palette is unbelievable - there is nothing that this guitar cannot do - but more importantly nothing that this guitar cannot do extremely well.

    This guitar does NOT come with a case. I can however include a gig bag for 35$ more.

    Visually, this guitar has a few dings - so it's not for the fussy buyer (you can check the pictures or just ask me for more if you want). But everything functional (neck, frets, hardware, electronics, tremolo etc) is perfect.
    Really - it's an amazing player, of the level of a VERY high end Fender, or a Carvin bolt. I can't think of much that would top that short of custom shop or Anderson/Tyler/Suhr.

    You WON'T find a better value.

    Straight headstock!

    Curious why you ask, considering the minimal difference it would have, especially with a locking nut? :)
