This Fender® Stratocaster® was made in the USA in 1977. It is all original. It weighs in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces, making it one of the lightest 70's strats out there. Its a hardtail model. These 70's strats often get a bad rap, and sometimes its rightly so, but this is really a good one. It comes with a non original hard shell case.
