yes there are strats with single coils in the neck and mid positions and a humbucker in the bridge. what type of music do you play? The guitar was probably a MIM fat strat or something. I actually wish I had bought this guitar instead of the 3 single coil strat i currently have. The humbucker's nice if you occasionally play around with heavier sounds than a strat would normally handle. Plus you can always swap it out and try out other humbuckers.

Someone probably bought a real Fender Strat and put a different pickguard on it with 1 humbucker.

Models manufactured before 1998 included the Honduran mahogany-bodied Strat-O-Sonic guitars with the choice of Black Dove P-90 soap-bars or Atomic II humbucking pick-ups, which lasted until 2007. They also had single PU models.

EDIT: ^^

Wouldn't of been that one, that's MIA, I think, and costs about £800+ new. I don't think they'd let the price drop that much.


It could be a Tom Delonge Strat. I've heard they aren't very collectable, but I dunno, I've never played one to judge for myself, and I've only heard a few things.



Did it look like that?

exactly like that one Lil Macker, except turquoise (yes i know, so its not exactly). it was in a cash converter, they are usually hopeless with valueing guitars so £300 probably isnt accurate. my friend bough a guitar from their for £200 and researched it to be worth £1500!

You think thats bad, there was a vintage Danelectro in my local one, but I didn't have enough money to buy it! It was only £300 aswell. I love Dannys

Anyways, on the guitar, you'd might want to change the humbucker (if you buy it, of course) unless you plan to play punk and things; Invaders are a one trick pony really.

It's got the potential to be an awesome guitar!

EDIT: And it is more turqoisy in real life; the colour is Sea Foam Green, and that picture shows it blue for some reason.

The guitar comes in Seafoam Green, Daphine blue (what your pic was), Rare Graphiti yellow, Olympic white, and Black.

The guitar itself is a good guitar if you are a blink fan, it has a straightforward sound. If you are gonna use it to play stuff other than pop punk/punk i reccoment a pickup swap or just a MIM HSS Fender
