The original circuitry shows potentiometers date February '56, paper capacitor, intact solder-joints, three way CRL selector switch and Switchcraft jack-socket.The fingerboard shows some wear, but the frets are still in decent condition with lots of room for bending and a nice and easy action.This model was conceived as a reply to the ES 175, but its early Guild humbuckers give a strong and distinctive personality.Great jazz and blues guitar, all original including the frets. Figured ash body, two-tone sunburst finish, maple neck and bakelite parts.Custom color's rarity, light weight and sound make of this guitar a winner.Excellent action, smooth and easy maple fretboard with frets in good condition.
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.
Pickups have a loud output and are well balanced, and give the guitar a hot and clear sound. The guitar comes with its original black tolex hardshell case with Fender logo.
A super clean example of a late-70s Stratocaster in exceptionally fine conditions. It has a 1979 serial number and the grey-bottom pickups are dated 19, so the instrument must have been shipped early in 1980.
The finish is original and in good conditions, with some checking and heavy wear on the back, which goes down to the wood. The wear-pattern and a small additional plugged hole from another strap-button on the lower horn, reveal that the previous owner was left-handed and used the guitar upside-down, la Hendrix.
All the parts are original: bridge, tuners, circuitry, staggered-pole pickups, potentiometers, three-way selector switch, plastic parts, etc.
