1978 Fender Stratocaster
1978 fender stratocaster in very nice shape. this guitar is a very nice player or collectible unit. the finish is original black and is in very nice shiny condition. the rosewood neck is very clean and the frets are in excellent shape. the tuners are all original and function perfectly. I do not have a tremolo arm with this guitar. it is also missing the vibrato spring cavity cover on the back. the pick guard is an all parts replacement. the pickups are original. they are a medium grey bobbin style, typical of the era and they sound great. the body has been routed in the bridge position at some point. Of course this is hidden once the pick guard is in place (see photos). it does not affect the tone or playability whatsoever. The bridge appears to be original but maybe the lower block has been replaced (?). I do own many of these guitars but the bridges on 70's strats do seem kind of generic and I own mostly 60's fenders so my expertise is focused on the earlier models. this guitar sounds great. it plays great. it would be a perfect guitar for a player or a collector. it does not belong in a museum, but do any of them? I did not get it with a case. I do have various fender hard cases from various eras if the buyer wants one just ask. feel free to ask any questions or you can call me between 9am-8pm cst 785-766-8906
please Czech my feedback and bid with confidence. I have been collecting fenders since 1985, but I have recently acquired another 78, so it's time for someone else to enjoy this guitar. please also view my other auctions for more related stuff.
