FENDER STRATOCASTER, 1979
Sunburst. A super clean example of a late-70s Stratocaster in exceptionally fine conditions. Figured-ash body with brown sunburst finish and maple neck with rosewood fingerboard (and skunk-stripe on the back). Black plastic parts, typical of the period.
The guitar is completely original. It has a 1979 serial number and the grey-bottom pickups are dated 1979 and 1980, so the instrument must have been shipped early in 1980. No other date is visible, neither on the neck base (the stamp has faded and can't be read anymore) nor on the potentiometers (the date is hidden by the solder-joints). This Strat has all-original hardware and circuitry features, with three-bolts neckplate, tilt-neck adjustment, "F" tuners, truss-rod "bullet" on the front of the headstock, etc.
Very nice look, body has a beautiful finish and wood-grain. The weight is acceptable if compared to other ash-bodied Strats from the same era. Everythings works fine. Smooth action, frets and fretboard are in excellent shape. The guitar comes with its original hardshell case, which in perfect conditions as well.
