You can find a few very slight marks on the finish, but it takes some time and good lighting. In other words this is a Strat that won't be reminding you that someone else played it first every time you open the case. Zero fret wear. Thanks to the twin noiseless single-coils, the Shawbucker bridge pickup, and the S-1 switch, you have lots of tonal options. In fact you get about twice as many optional settings compared to a regular Strat with a 5-way. This comes with an excellent case, the space above the treble side horn is because the case is designed to fit either a right-hand or a lefty Strat.
