This 1979 Fender Stratocaster is a great example of the value that can be found throughout the Fender range in the late 1970's. Refinished in a Daphne Blue custom colour lacquer, this guitar has a style that really sets it apart from other Strat's of this period. Featuring a Maple neck an Alder body, this Stratocaster features a hardtail bridge as opposed to the more typical synchronised tremolo found on the model. The Telecaster style string through body bridge not only greatly improves tuning stability, but also gives these hardtail Strats a real sound of their own, with a woodier, more resonant sound than others.
This guitar is in very good, all original condition, with some minor signs of play wear and patina to the neck. This guitar was refinished by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument workshop. The pickups are non original, and appear to be very early Fender Custom Shop single coil examples. The rest of the hardware is original, and this guitar includes a non original case.
As with all our instruments, this guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
