Here's a remarkably clean and original 43-year-old Stratocaster that plays and sounds every bit as good as it looks. Totally original down to the untouched solder joints, original 5-way switch (Fender introduced these as standard issue in 1977) and lovely dark rosewood 'board. Minimal playing wear. During the late 70's to early 80s, Fender opted for black trim on Stratocasters. This one has all its black fittings in the original case, should you wish to use them, but currently sports a period correct white 'guard, pickup covers, trem springs coverplate and tremolo arm with switch tip.
