TL:DR All original fender Strat from 1980 (same model as 78’ and 79’) except pickguard which is a custom made one to fit this strat. Excellent condition except one mark on the side. Extremely rare see through blonde with a rosewood board and flamed maple neck!Spot on Setup with our Gilded Treatment!

Woah! Please enjoy this awesome and original (except pickgaurd) Fender Stratocaster from 1980. It sports a drop dead gorgeous see-thru blonde finish with visible ash grain and a dark rosewood fretboard. The maple neck is the breadwinner with a really nice flamed maple stock with lots of movement on the back and even some on the peghead. The neck is a no-nonsense chunky late 70's "U" shape that starts at a meaty 0.87" and lightly fills to a 0.95". A very comfortable and rounded neck profile with tons of shoulder make wrapping your hand around it very natural. This strat is hefty at 10 pounds and 2 ounces, we're talking sustain for days, this strat really is powerful with a super hot bridge pickup and a real nice midrange punch. Acoustically, this strat has a very pleasant sound like most strats but has a bit more midrange. This dense slab of ash also gives a deep bass response that translates to an overall warm tone through the amp. Expect extremely articulate notes that you just dont get with todays pickups a very nice lower/mid range that is not overpowered by shrill highs.  You better believe this strat plays as good as it looks, and its definitely a unicorn strat that has some of the coolest features ever for a fullerton strat. 

This piece has been fully setup with our "Gilded Treatment." This means instrument has been fully inspected, professionally photographed and documented along will a full deep cleaning of any residual grime and dust. Polished frets to allow you to "glide" over the fretboard. Dialed Nut Height with optimal slots and contact points with lubrication. 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. Thank you for looking

 You'll be shocked to find how good our pro setup is! A 100$ value free! big bends fretting out is a thing of the past, find out for yourself!

Condition: Excellent condition! This strat looks mint, upon closer inspection you will find only one impression on the neck and a few small dings around the edges with one spot of authentic wear. Neck is in great condition with a perfect truss rod, theres no issues or cracks on the guitar and all parts function as they should!
All original pickups and pots that date to 70', solder joints are untouched perfect which definitely contribute to the powerful output of these single coils. (neck 5.78k)(middle 5.76k)(bridge 7.38k) Volumes and tones role 0-10 exponentially and theres no grounding or hum issues. Super Punchy and meaty pickups and bridge is super high output.
