 Fender USA Vintage Stratocaster



Fender Stratocaster S.N. 717281

From 1975/6, one of the last to have its serial number on the neck plate. The gurus tell me the neck date is the 4th day (Thursday) of the 8th week of 1976 which was the 26th February 1976  Owned by me since the mid 80's, during which time it's rarely ever been played. In superb original condition, it comes with an original late 70's style ABS case. As far as I can tell all parts are original including the three way switch. The tremolo arm not shown, is not original, it was missing when I bought the guitar.
The black pick guard and white pickup covers are all original from the transitional period of changing from white to black plastic trim.  During this period having used up the previous stock of white pick guards Fender started fitting black ones but continued to use up all the remaining stock of white pickup covers rear tremolo covers and knobs before Stratocasters finally emerged with a full set of black plastic parts.  This I've been told has since become unofficially known as the "Tuxedo" period.  The pick guard has a Fender label on the back of it bearing the guitar's serial number.   

A rare opportunity to acquire a superb unmolested classic vintage guitar. Ok it might be a bit expensive, but I think its also pretty special.

The only officially licensed  boutique handmade reissue of this icon of British music history is available in either a Golden Brown livery or Retro Blue & White. The Dansette  Red & White, unfortunately has since run out.   The Retro Blue is a 1960's remnant of genuine Rexine material of which there is a limited amount.  There will not be enough of this very rare vintage material for all of the remaining run of amplifiers unless a suitable alternative should become available.

Burns guitar, designed by Jim Burns, a respected pioneering British guitar maker.  Fantastic restored condition. cherry red see-through finish mahogany body original burns trisonic pickups, replacement bridge, and reproduction knobs of the correct type everything else is original including the Van Gent tuning machines.  Comes with a newish case for protection and storage.  Original cases for these were horrible cardboard things, but it would look great in a Selmer case.  Reluctant sale, I bought it on a whim because I had one when I was 18, basically a nostalgia trip, from which I have since recovered.
