TL:DR One owner 75' strat, Professional Refinish in Olympic White over the original Olympic White finish. Brass Nut, 5-Way switch and vintage Dimarzio Pots were installed in the 80's. Everything else is original

Absolute stunner right here, Fender Stratocaster from 1975 refinished in Olympic White which was the original color. Polyurethane refinish was done sometime in the 90's the finish is very similar to the American Standard model. This strat has all the building blocks of a killer 75' strat while maintaining a real sexy look. The olympic white finish is super glossy and absolutely shines, paired with the original white plastic and chrome hardware you got one fancy looking strat. But Once you put your hand on this neck you'll feel right at home, the Super comfy and thick "C" shape ( 0.84" at 1st, 0.87" at 12th) has a good depth to it for really comfy chording but very little shoulder for that hendrix thumb style playing. The natural relic has worn off alot of the poly revealing a smooth surface that allows you to "glide" all over the neck and roll over onto the fretboard. The neck just looks really badass while the body looks so shiny and sleek its an awesome combo. The Sound is extraordinary, firstly this baby is only 7.6 lbs! this most lightweight and resonant slab of alder ever produces such a balanced sound. The original 75' grey bobbin pickups are the real show stopper, unbelievably bell like and chimey. These pickups have such a round and warm bottom end that combines in perfect harmony with real juicy and punchy uppermids with glass like highs that are not too shrill but definitely crunchy. The Vintage caps and Dimarzio Pots sound amazing and roll very linearly to 10. These 70's strats have only just begun to really appreciate and are catching on quick, you don't wanna miss an opportunity to get a collectible and profitable strat that you can also abuse and play to the ground. Thank you for looking!

Action and intonation is dead on and neck relief is perfect. The neck has absolutely no warps or humps and the truss rod turns perfectly with tons of room to turn for seasonal changes.
