Weighing in at a scant 7.2 lbs, this late 1970’s ash-bodied Strat is something of a unicorn amongst that era of Fender guitars. The fashion was for heavy guitars at that time, and featherweights like this one are few and far between. Beyond that, it’s built with a dark rosewood fingerboard, which is something you don’t see too often either.

The guitar is in great shape and largely original but for a Duncan lil’59 humbucker in the bridge position. Not much in the way of finish wear on the body or neck, and the frets have plenty of life left. Hardtail bridge, F-tuners, three-bolt neck with bullet truss-rod and big CBS headstock. A great looking and sounding guitar; the neck pickup is amazing on this one. Set-up here at Folkway.

Original hardshell case included in the price, and the Fender booklet is in the case pocket.
