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.
