  • Description: Incredibly hard to find Olympic White Fender® Stratocaster® variant in all original NBA (never been apart) near mint condition. This guitar was probably assembled and shipped by Fender® sometime in the first half of 1971 based on its serial number and features. It came from an original owner in California and based on the source of the instrument, the physical appearance and simple forensics, we’ve deduced that this guitar has never been taken apart and in addition we are proud to asses its condition as all-original near mint. We have decided not to take this incredible example apart as the risk of cosmetic damage isn’t worth knowing the exact date nor does it effect the instruments value. Everything’s right about this guitar, it’s Olympic White, it’s four bolt, it has a rosewood fingerboard and it weighs 8 pounds 4 ounces. Fantastic full neck, a handful very uniform in depth, nice small but factory tall frets are perfect, no wear all there. Sounds incredible, very glassy full bandwidth single coil crème with plenty of low end to warm things up. This is a near new example of the best Stratocaster® money could buy at this time; late enough to have the Hendrix look but early enough to be a great guitar. We highly recommended buying instruments in this realm of quality, as the investment yield is always greater when buying rare models in perfect condition. There is no better place to put your money than in this fine piece. 1971 Fender® Stratocaster® Olympic White with rosewood fingerboard serial number 314379 near mint all original with original case, strap, cable, tremolo arm, bridge cover, owners’ manual, hangtag, and case key.
