If you have studied USA Vintage Reissue Strats from the 1980s, you know that 1985 Reissues are the hardest year to find. When Fender moved production to Corona, the factory started producing strats at the end of 1985 in small quantities using mostly left over Fullerton parts. This 1985 USA Reissue is one such example. Factory Black Finish, One Piece Maple Neck with a 10-3-85 pencil date, 1985 dated pots, a body with very thin Fullerton contours, and a V00 serial number. The guitar is one of the lightest US vintage reissues we have encountered weighing in at a mere 7.2 pounds. Other than a 5 way switch the guitar is all original. Excellent vintage condition. Included is the original tweed case and tremolo arm.
