Fresher FS-682 Stratocaster 1970s w/ Built-In Effects

Utterly ridiculous? Ingeniously practical? You be the judge! This is the Fresher FS-682, an absolute spectacle of an electric guitar which will make you circuit benders blow your caps. Starting off as a budget brand in the early 1970s, Fresher is synonymous with 70s Japanese lawsuit guitars, producing many classic Fender and Gibson copies with fun and quirky design features. It's safe to say towards the end of the decade they were really pushing the envelope. Produced in a number of configurations and finishes (some even had built in drum machines), these multi-effect equipped Stratocaster copies absolutely rip and are becoming increasingly collectable. 

This one is totally mint and untouched and features 3 on-board effects as well as a preamp boost section, offering a huge range of sounds and combinations. Auto Wah, Distortion/Sustain and Phaser are built in with their own dedicated parameter knob. And don't think these are little transistor-based effect boards. These are full on, stompbox sized pedals built into the guitar body. Seriously, the entire body is routed to fit these enormous 70s circuit boards, and they sound absolutely amazing. If you've checked the prices for original 70s stompboxes, you're probably realising this is a kick-ass instrument to have in your arsenal and you'll certainly be kissing your pedalboard goodbye. Freshly setup with 10-46s, you have to play this thing to truly appreciate how good it sounds! Comes with it's original hard shell case.
