This '74 Fender Stratocaster captures the essence of the '70s, a time of musical experimentation and iconic sounds. One of the immediately recognisable things is the large headstock with the famous Fender logo, a nod to that era's style that instantly transports you back in time.
But it's not just about looks. This '74 Strat delivers that classic Strat sound that's loved by guitarists worldwide. The three original single-coil pickups create a symphony of tones – from those sparkling, clear highs to those warm, mellow lows. And with the 5-way pickup selector switch, you can dial in a wide range of sounds, perfect for anything from clean rhythms to screaming solos.
The CBS features are well and truly on display on this guitar including the bullet truss rod nut. It might seem like a small thing, but it's a distinctive touch that marks this era. There's the micro-tilt neck adjustment feature with the 3-bolt neck. This nifty feature makes it easier, showing that Fender was thinking about player comfort and setup convenience.
This Strat has had a few mods over its lifetime including a refret by industry respected luthier, Frank Grubisa, and the original tuners being replaced with Schallers in 1995 - the original tuners are in the case and are included in the sale. Other than these changes, we believe this guitar to be in its original condition.
This '74 Strat is an absolute beauty, and the fact that it's in such excellent condition is like finding a treasure. The body is smooth, the finish gleams, and the colours evoke that classic era of rock 'n' roll. Check it out sooner rather than later!
