Enjoy this beautiful Fender Stratocaster with all original electronics from 1975 in a gorgeous Sunburst Finish. This is piece has all the early 70's strat appointments, the serial on the heel plate, two string trees, fender pat logo, transitional white/black plastic, but does not have staggered pickup poles which ended in 74. This solid 3 Piece Ash body has some gorgeous figuring, take a look at the center of the body at beautiful grain bringing this piece to life. This mid-weight piece has tremendous sustain, and the original pickups chime with sweet highs and tight lows, very bell and balanced, perfect for recording. The neck is to die for, has a natural played in feel from years of play that you don't get from new guitars, old wood that has aged and resonates more and more every year, and plays like a dream. Completely tuned up, cleaned, and polished by our experts here at gilded guitars you can expect this guitar to play like it just left the factory, setup with a fresh set of 10's. Thank you

Condition: In very good, original condition with some dings and normal wear around the body. Headstock is perfectly preserved and neck is dead straight. Absolutely no shifting in the 3 bolt neck, completely secure, if you've played a few of these you know 1 in every 4 3 bolt strats shift in the neck pocket.  No issues or cracks, and setup up perfectly to play like a dream.

Electronics: All original electronics. The most sweet and bell like pickups with tons of high and lows and that scooped midrange that strats do so well. This strat has the most sustain I have ever heard from a 70's strat, this piece basically plays for you and sings. *Electronics date to 76' but where most likely a pre-order part. This is not uncommon and even happens on 70's gibsons too, during a wildly unorganized decade for guitar manufacturers.
