Theres really never been a decade where the Stratocaster wasn't the king of electric guitars. From Holly in the 50's, Hendrix in the 60's, Gilmour in the 70's, SRV in the 80's - and the list goes on and on. Capable of a multitude of styles, this 3 pickup giant, has defined, and will continue to define music for generations to come. Here we have a great example of an interesting era for Fender. 3 Tone Burst, with a very light real relic from over 40 years of existence. Bullet style 3-bolt neck, with micro-tilt adjustment is nice and straight with only mild fret wear. Slim C profile fits comfortable in the hand and has almost no wear. F stamped original tuners, all original bridge assembly and pot codes make this the real deal for anyone looking for a funky number. Original pickups, the bridge pickup has recently been rewound by master pickup repair-man Tom Brantley and is completely to spec. 

Replaced period correct tone capacitor (original is included in the case). 

Slightly over 7 lbs. 

1 9/16" nut width 

Currently strung up with 10's - 5/64" action on the 6th string at the 12th fret, and 1/64" at the first. 

It was once upon a time strung up left handed with a strap button hole drilled on the lower horn. Typical pickguard crack towards the bass side. 

Comes with original hardshell case!
