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 it's also pretty special.
Serious and "SENSIBLE" offers only please!
