This is one of the coolest Strat models ever produced. This early 70’s example has tons of tone & sustain. Its got an Alder body w/an original 3-tone Sunburst finish w/a nice patina. Its rare “4-Bolt” Maple neck is dated to September 1971 w/a decent amount of play time. Its got a large transition logo, a single string tree & “F” tuners from new & she’s fabulous looking. Frets are original. Its got a nice White pickgard that’s got a cool aged fade & she’s loaded w/3 original pickups w/plastic wrapped wire & pots dated to the 12th week of 1971. Still sporting its original bridge saddles, this bad boy is a 100% original & untouched piece of history. She’s the exact same type Strat that was made most famous by Richie Blackmore from Deep Purple’s earliest days. She’s lightweight & has everything you’d want tone wise. These Alder Bodied Maple Necks have a very unique tone quality. 1971 was a very rare year for the last of the 4-bolt Maple necks prior to going to their new bullet truss 3-bolts. If you’d ever wanted a real fabulous Strat, this may be your ticket. It’s excellent & comes w/an original hard case.
