This is a very nice 1979 Strat in original Wine Red finish. The full maple neck feels super comfortable & plays great up & down the fretboard. The pickups sound marvellous with clear, bell-like tones.
The guitar is in great shape for its age with a cool vintage vibe - some minor nicks, chips, dents & dings, surface scratches & some finish wear.
The neck has a chunky, rounded profile with black dot inlays. Frets show some wear but have plenty of life in them. It features Fender’s fabulous large headstock of the era with bullet truss rod & double string trees. F tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod is in good working condition.
The body is Fender’s slightly thicker contoured Strat solid-body finished in Wine Red. Original tremolo bridge with adjustable saddles. 3-ply black pickguard is in great shape with no cracks, but some of the Wine Red lacquer finish is chipped or worn in places. Just adds to the vintage vibe in our opinion.
Weight is 8.05 lbs
Action is 0.5mm @ 1st fret and 2.0mm @ 12th fret.
Master volume & dual tone controls with black skirted knobs; 5-way selector switch. All electronics are in perfect working condition.
This one ticks a lot of boxes – an excellent 43-year-old Strat with a set of killer pickups. It is a fine player with classic Fender Strat tone to burn.
Comes in its original hard-shell case.
