We just moved a 1980 Strat with this same, gorgeous sunburst. This example is a couple years newer and a bit cleaner as well.

From the Dan Smith era, but just before they changed the bridge design and changed to the two-knob setup. This is a fairly rare guitar in this configuration and it came out not long before US production of Fender guitars took the 1980s hiatus.

The guitar is all original and is in super clean condition. The frets show very little wear. The neck is perfect and the action set up nicely with little effort.

Includes a non original hardshell case.
