Item specifics

Condition: Used : Split the cost with friends
An item that has been previously used. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. This item may be a floor model or an item that has been returned to the seller after a period of use. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Seller notes: Light fret wear. The face of body has some scratches, these can be seen when you angle the guitar towards the light in a certain way, nothing deep enough that has damaged the paint finish. On the back side of the body there are lots scratches from rubbing against a belt buckle, but again, nothing deep enough to damage the paint finish. There’s a small issue with the output jack, it buzzes and cuts out if the guitar lead plugged into the guitar is pushed on. The Fender tweed guitar case is a bit shabby on the outside but clean in the inside and protects the guitar well.

Richie Sambora

For sale is my 1996 Fender Richie Sambora Mk1 U.S.A. Stratocaster guitar in Cherry Sunburst, complete with original Fender tweed case.  


The sought-after Mk1 Richie Sambora signature model was produced at Fender U.S.A. for just a few years during the mid 1990s.  They took the iconic classic stratocaster guitar and gave it rock arena status by giving it big star fret markers, original locking floyd rose tremolo, dimarzio humbucker, texas single pickups, and a 25dB active circuit switchable mid boost, for that extra oomph and thick rich tone. The guitar was available in two finishes, olympic white and cherry sunburst finish, the latter being more expensive to buy and more desirable of the two.  


Production of the Mk1 RS in America ceased nearly 20 years ago, it wasn’t long before all new stock of these guitars soon depleted in guitar shops and the only way to get one was through the secondhand market.  They were easy to come by to start with, but as the years have passed by it has increasingly become harder to find one and are now more valuable than ever.  I’ve seen maybe one or two on a worldwide search on eBay in the last couple of years.  


I know I will regret selling my guitar, but with a new arrival in to my family it’s time to sell and give someone else a go.  I also own an older beaten up white version of the guitar so I won’t be totally without.  


The overall condition of the guitar is very good, to look at it you wouldn’t think it is 18 year old electric guitar.  The neck particularly is in great condition.  It’s fairly common to see the lacquer along both edges of the fretboard to come off on these guitars, like my white one, but on this guitar only a very small amount has flaked off, and is barely noticeable.  There is some light fret wear, but nothing that needs attention.


The face of body has some scratches, these can be seen when you angle the guitar towards the light in a certain way, nothing deep enough that has damaged the paint finish.  On the back side of the body there are lots scratches from rubbing against a belt buckle, but again, nothing deep enough to damage the paint finish.  


The volume and tone/mid dials, 5 blade switch, mid boost switch and active circuitry are all fully working. There’s a small issue with the output jack, it buzzes and cuts out if the guitar lead plugged into the guitar is pushed on.  Though, this may be an issue with my guitar lead rather than the guitar, as this buzzing occurs when I use the lead with my other guitar too.  


The Fender tweed guitar case is a bit shabby on the outside but clean in the inside and protects the guitar well.
