VINTAGE FENDER 1979 25TH ANNIVERSARY STRATOCASTER WITH CASE AND COA
Regular price $3,299.00
In 1979, Fender celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Stratocaster (introduced in 1954) with the first “anniversary” instrument, and the first Fender instrument to be issued in a pre-determined and numbered, limited quantity.
The 1979 Anniversary Stratocaster is significant for a number of reasons. It represents both a look behind and a look ahead for Fender. 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).
This is a stunning example in excellent condition! The COA and original case are also in present here!
