Buy Tom Delonge Fender Strat

 

For Sale:  Fender Tom Delonge Foam Green Electric Guitar SQUIER W/ Gig Bag Blink 182.  Used guitar.  Plays fantastic!  All original.  Cosmetically very good with some normal signs of play wear.  This includes small dings in the paint.  This is on the face near the input jack and on the bottom edge where it appears the guitar was set on the ground, as there are small sections of missing paint and various scratches.  This guitar is straight, all electronics work as they should and there is virtually no fret wear.  There is a lot of light buckle wear on the back of the guitar.

Fender Strat Tom Delonge Edition

As if I didn’t have enough projects going on I’m starting another one. This one will be based on the Inca Silver strat that Tom played and will be as close to it as possible minus the number of screws in the pickguard. I have the body and the pickguard so far. The body is a Robert cray signature strat body and the Tom Delonge strat has a trem but I’ve always wanted a hardtail strat. What I’m trying to figure out is by looking at the wiring diagram on the fender site it looks like it has a treble bleed circuit. The Robert Cray body is routed for three single coils but that will change.

Fender Tom Delonge Strat Review

2002 Tom Delonge Stratocaster.  Made in Mexico. I got mine in Black with a pearloid Pickguard. I must say, that i am not a fan of Blink 182..Nor do i own any music worked on by Tom Delonge.  I do however love this guitar. 21 Medium/Jumbo Frets. The guitar has a string through/Hard Tail bridge.  Seymour Duncan SH-8 Invader in the bridge.  It has one volume knob.  The tuners are the vintage kluson style tuners.  The body seems to be a one or two piece Alder.  The neck is a beautiful “C shape” with a CBS 70’s headstock.  This is made on the “Deluxe series” platform.  When the pickguard is removed, the body IS routed to the Standard SSH. Bought mine used.  It had some small scratching..Nothing bad enough o noice unil i got i home.
Action, Fit, & Finish:

Beautiful finish.  Polyurethane on the body and a satin finish on the neck. The action was off when i purchased it used.  It was quickly remedied by a good guitar tech.  The bridge seems tight and good.  The low E sring does however seem a little close to the edge of the guitar neck.  The tech made notice of it, but noticed that the nut was perfect.  This could be explained by the possibility of the bridge being slightly, not centered perfectly.  This does not effect the playability and may have been done to give a little more zip code to the high E. No tuning problems like some have stated.  Great cut nut.  Frets are a little rough but can be easily repaired.
Sound Quality:

I play moderate rock.  I play mostly to studio record and write music.  I play through some small practice amps and systems.  As an instrument, his IS one of the best i have owned.  The sustain is somewhat lacking a times, but the tone easily makes up for any losses the guitar has in that department.
Reliability/Durability:

This guitar will withstand live gigging and will last a long time. Had a loose strap button..Changed the screw and it is tight. Very dependable and nice.  You could gig with this alone..but you would be an idiot to do this with any guitar.

Fender Tom Delonge Strat

The Fender Stratocaster is an electric guitar. Designed by Leo Fender, George Fullerton, and Freddie Tavares in 1954, it has been manufactured continuously by the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation to the present. It is a double-cutaway guitar, with an extended top horn for balance. Along with the Gibson Les Paul, it is one of the most popularly copied electric guitar shapes. “Stratocaster” and “Strat” are trademark terms belonging to Fender.
Originally the Stratocaster was offered in a 2-color sunburst finish on a solid, deeply contoured ash body, a 21-fret one-piece maple neck with black dot inlays and Kluson tuning heads. In 1956 Fender began issuing solid Stratocasters with alder bodies. In 1960 the available custom colors were standardized, many of which were automobile lacquer colors from DuPont available at an additional 5% cost. The unique single-ply, 8-screw hole white pickguard allowed all electronic components—except the recessed jack plate—to be attached to it for easy assembly. Despite subsequent Stratocaster models (including copies) vintage Fender models are highly valued by collectors for their investment potential and players who prefer the timbre of older models.
Stratocasters have been used in many genres, including country (the genre Leo Fender intended for), rock, pop, soul, rhythm and blues, blues, and jazz.
