Vintage Fender Stratocaster Natural 1979


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


A smooth player from the late '70s, featuring a very nicely rounded & somewhat chunky profile neck. The trio of single coils sound fantastic & deliver clear, bell-like tones that really shimmer & chime. Professionally set up with fresh strings & low action, so it plays & sounds fantastic.

Cosmetic Condition: Really nice shape actually for being 40-years old, showing signs of only mild play wear - various minor nicks & dings; scratches & some finish wear on the back of the body. Overall the guitar has a cool look to it with a great vibe & beautiful patina.

Neck: Nicely rounded & somewhat chunky maple neck with black dot inlays. Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them. Oversize headstock with bullet truss rod & double string trees. F-tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine. Although the serial number on the headstock dates to '79, the neck dates to '78.

Body: Contoured, solid ash body in natural finish. Tremolo bridge with adjustable saddles & trem arm included. 3-ply black pickguard & trem cover. Guitar weighs 9 lbs 4.8 oz.

Electronics: Three single coil pickups with grey bottoms all date to '78. Bridge - 5.71K ohms; Middle - 5.54K ohms; Neck - 5.65K ohms. Master volume & dual tone controls with 5-way selector switch. Pots also date to '78 & 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.
