Fender 1979 Anniversary Stratocaster

Item: USSTRAT5479

In 1979, Fender celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Stratocaster with their first "anniversary" instrument

This particular instrument is in excellent original condition. The original silver finish shows no finish cracking and has just a few minor nicks in the finish. The maple necks feels great and has a very fast, playable maple fingerboard. It weighs 9.1 lbs.

Features of note include: reversion to the four bolt neck plate; abandonment of the "bullet" truss rod adjustment in favor of the truss rod adjustment at the body end of the neck; and, the first use of "locking tuners" in a Fender guitar (Sperzel).
