The Fender Stratocaster is arguably the most popular electric guitar ever designed.
In 1981, the American-made Stratocaster was renamed the Standard Stratocaster to avoid confusion with other models originating outside USA. In 1986, it was renamed the American Standard Stratocaster followed by American Series Stratocaster in 2000 and then the American Standard Series Stratocaster in 2008. In most cases, all of these Stratocasters can simply be referred to as the American Standard Stratocaster. As Fender's primary production Stratocaster, this model has stayed largely the same since the early '80s.
This is a straight up, great playing USA Strat in very good overall shape for a guitar about to turn 30 years of age. Features include a beautiful black finish, modern-style 2 point trem bridge, and a great playing rosewood fingerboard.
Solid contoured ash body in black finish. Modern-style bridge with six individual saddles, skirted control knobs and a 3-ply parchment pickguard. The trem block on this one is a high quality Callaham unit. The trem arm and the back cover plate are present & accounted for.
Modern C shaped maple neck with a skunk stripe down the back and a neck tilt adjustment at the neck heel. Rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlays and a 1 11/16” nut. Sealed Fender tuners, 25.5” scale length.
Pickups are 3 x Bill Lawrence noise cancelling Strat pickups – sounding great with NO electronic buzz. We think these are the L-280 series which are from the original Bill Lawrence company, not the later offshoot.
Master volume control, dual tone controls and a 5-way selector switch.
Neck: 5.6 K Ohms.
Middle: 6.0 K Ohms.
Bridge: 5.6 K Ohms.
Weight: 7.9 lbs
There are a few small dents and nicks on the body with some light surface scratches but nothing offensive. The fingerboard and frets are in great shape with only light player wear and lots of life left in them. The neck is straight with a very comfortable action. All electronics and parts are in perfect working condition.
A classic workhorse USA Stratocaster in fine playing condition, with another 30 years to go.
Comes in a quality Fender gig bag in good condition.
