What makes this guitar special:  Ultra cool, 40-year old player's grade Strat finished in classic 3-tone sunburst.  The guitar's got a great vibe & plays exceptionally well.  A pro set up from Cream City Music with fresh strings & low action - smooth & silky.

Cosmetic Condition:  Just the right look with some light road wear - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches/buckle rash, mild weather checking & some light finish wear.

Neck:  Slender profile maple neck with black dot inlays.  The neck was refretted with medium jumbo frets which show no wear.  Large headstock with bullet truss rod & unoriginal string trees.  Original F-logo tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.  Neck dates to '75.

Body:  Contoured, solid alder body in original 3-tone sunburst finish.  Original tremolo bridge with adjustable saddles.  Original 3-ply white pickguard is in great shape with no cracks.  Guitar weighs 7 lbs 7.1 oz.  The bridge pickup cavity in the body was slightly routed, but it's not too bad.

Pickups:  Unoriginal Fender single coil Strat pickups which date from a slightly later period.  The pots date to '82 so there's a good chance the pickups are from about the same time frame.  Despite their unoriginality, they sound marvelous in the guitar & deliver gorgeous, clear tones.  Bridge - 5.74K ohms; Middle - 6.05K ohms; Neck - 5.74K ohms.  Unoriginal 5-way toggle switch.  All electronics are in perfect working condition.

Case:  Original hardshell case included.

Why We Love Fender

It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
