Here we have a circa 1976 Fender Hardtail Stratocaster that wants to be your new favorite guitar. Lots of playwear and modifications including a complete body refinish. The pickup cavities have been routed for larger pickups but the guitar now has a set of non-original but traditional Fender Strat pickups that sound quite good. This one is a road warrior, but even with the wear and tear and modifications it’s seen, it’s still a great workingman’s guitar that’s ready to hit the stage whenever you are.
Repro Fender-branded tuners. Nut width of 1 5/8 inches. Maple neck with a 25.5 inch radius. Neck depth of .90 inches at the first fret and .95 inches at the twelfth fret. Rosewood fingerboard with 21 frets. New Fender Stratocaster pickups. Replaced pots and wiring. Hardtail, non-vibrato model.
We love Hardtail Strats. This one has some serious visual mojo with its black pickguard and walnut finish. A great guitar for a working musician and it’s very light weight for a 70s Strat at 7 3/4 pounds. Comes with a modern hardshell case, too.
