SOLD - Vintage Fender Stratocaster Refin – USA 1972

by Fender

$4,995.00 22010


Here is a lovely vintage Fender Stratocaster, USA made in 1972 and refinished a long time ago in a subtle Sonic Blue.

This one is in super clean condition for a guitar hitting its half century this year. The refin is a good pro job from long ago, so it’s already started mildly discolouring – in a good way.

It has also been given an excellent pro refret with medium jumbos, which remain in excellent condition.

The neck is super clean, with a very comfortable full D profile and dark rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dots.

The body has a few expected scuffs & minor chips here and there but nothing offensive. It shows almost no marks on the rear, and virtually no tarnishing of the metal parts.

Features –

3 x original (we think) staggered pole, grey bottom pickups

Tremolo bridge with original cast saddles

Original F tuners

3 ply laminated pickguard

Bullet truss rod & rear skunk stripe

Large headstock with Fender logo & stickers all intact

3 bolt neck joint with tilt adjustment

Volume & upper tone pot codes 1377206 = 1972

Lower tone pot is a replacement dated 1979

Original tone knobs

Volume knob is a replacement

Neck date is 22 May 1972

Weight is 7.58 lbs

This nice old Strat has a super comfortable neck with a nut width of 42 mm (1.654”) and standard vintage Fender radius is 71/2” but string bending is clean and easy, courtesy of the excellent newer jumbo frets.

The pickups are bright and snappy sounding. The bridge is rock solid, and there are no tuning issues. The classic reverse-F tuners work perfectly and look fabulous.

All in all, an excellent early 70s Strat with a set of great sounding pickups, that magnificent oversize headstock, rear skunk stripe and a 3 bolt neck joint that does NOT move or slide around.

Quite a looker, with sound to match.

Comes in a non original hard case in good condition.
