This superb Stratocaster is well over 40 years old now. It is a wonderful example of a sought after model with the vintage DNA to match. It is in good condition for its age and use. It sounds absolutely amazing and has an incredibly fast Rose fretboard. It does have some marks as you would expect. There is some checking to the lacquer. It also has some wear to the back of the neck. The frets are good and easy to play. She is all original and ready for the next step of her musical adventure.
Playing wise – well this is a real find. It is one of the best playing Stratocasters we have ever come across and if you are looking for a killer vintage Strat, with all the tones you need and a quicksilver fretboard, then you have found it here.
The wood has really settled and matured to give you all of the dynamics you need and that unmistakable period sound. This is an American made classic.
This is a beautiful guitar which is in amazing condition for a 5 decades old guitar. There are no major bangs, gouges or scratches but of course this is a vintage instrument so you will have the normal wear commensurate with that age. There are some swirls of course and the odd bump here and there. The chrome Fender backplate has plenty of rash as you would expect after so long. There are the odd little grazes around and about but you would be amazed how great she looks after so long.
The trade off of course is, despite the odd mark, you also have the lovely patina that only comes as the wood matures.
Of course you know with these original USA Strats that you are getting quality. No collection is complete without a Strat - and this one not only looks amazing ( and distinctive ) but also sounds superb.
The guitar comes with its period correct hard case - and loads of cred. She has been professionally set up by Bristol guitar guru Simon Bamber.
