Fender Stratocaster (1979)


A killer 1979 Fender Stratocaster just in on consignment! 

From the moment you pick up this Strat, you can just tell it's one of the good ones. The setup is flawless, there's a really nice punch and resonance when played acoustically, the neck carve is slender but not overly so...it just feels right. Seems like most 70s Fenders we encounter got played a ton which may help explain why this one has so much soul.

We're loving the weather checked look. There are only a handful of small chips in the finish (2 are on the back of the neck), and the frets are in excellent condition with little wear and a good amount of life left in them. Plugged in, all the classic Strat chime and cluck are present whether played clean or overdriven. This is a really open, twangy - almost Tele-like - sounding Strat (i.e., it sounds awesome!). All electronics work perfectly. 

Hard to argue with this one folks - this is a great Strat, period! Priced with hardshell case.
