Fender The Strat Candy Apple Red 1982 (trade)

Fender The Strat in Candy Apple Red made in 1982. Fender introduced their "The Strat" model in 1980, during the CBS era of ownership.  It was designed as an upgrade to the standard Stratocaster model of the time, and it cost $250 more than the standard model. This model has "STRAT" in captial letters on the headstock. The Strat had some pre-CBS specifications, at this time CBS management were becoming aware that the sales and popularity of their late 1970s  models was declining whereas the reputation of the pre-CBS Stratocasters was increasing. Pre-CBS specifications include: a four bolt neck joint, small 1954-1965 style headstock, and no bullet truss rod nut. There were also some new features on this model. A  two-way rotary pickup selector switch replaced the middle tone control - combined with the 5-way selector this gave 9 pickup combinations in all. The Strat also has a higher output bridge pickup:  the Fender  X-1. The controls and hardware are 22K gold plated and included a heavy brass tremolo (for extra sustain), gold plated knobs and brass tuners. The guitar contains all the original parts and electronics except for the tuners which have been replaced by sperzels and newer frets. Includes original hardshell case.

Condition is excellent, 9 out of 10 with some light fading on the gold plated hardware, signs of use matching its age and the body contains a few dings in the finish revealing the gold lower layer which is actually a great look!
