Here we have a stunning & almost pristine condition 1977 Natural Stratocaster. This baby is in incredible condition for her age with literally zero body marks. She comes with her original tags and she has the original pots and “grey-bottom” wax potted pickups all stamped 1977 The pickups sound beautiful and spanky. She came with both a black 3 ply scratchplate as well as a white plate, so which one was the original, we are not too sure, but both are included in the sale. The plastic extras are white (Now fading) which all appear original. Back in the day, Fender used a lot of mixed plastic parts in order to use up existing stock, so some had matching black on black plastics and some had white on black. She has possibly had a nut replacement, her frets are in fantastic shape, her neck is fab-u-lous, with a lovely slim ‘C’ profile and with an incredible action. There is a little smudging on the headstock decal, which was somewhat synonymous with the mid 70’s quality control, however, she has had a full blacklight test & we can confirm that the lacquer work is all original.

Comes in a black Fender Tolex case with black interior and raised Fender logo.
