Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black, 1975

Fender Stratocaster Hard Tail Black, 1975

The Hard Tail Stratocaster was produced in tandem with its much better known brother, but it was never as popular as the trem bridge version. This version appealed mostly to players who wanted the extra sustain, snap and ‘spank’ from a fixed bridge – as with a Telecaster. The Hard Tail Stratocaster was finally discontinued in 2010 due to low sales.

Fender Stratocaster Elite Sunburst 1983

Fender Stratocaster Elite Sunburst 1983

Here’s a rare bird – from 1983, a Fender Stratocaster Elite in sunburst. This model was built only in 1983 and 1984, and introduced a number of new features and hardware pieces. Most visible of these are the short-lived FreeFlyte knife-edge trem, and the pushbutton pickup selectors. New pickups were installed, and the output jack went on the side – in this case, a Neutrix locking jack. With the three pickup switches, all pickup combinations are available. Not so immediately apparent is the routing. From the top, this guitar looks very much like a Stratocaster. But if you turn it over, you see that there is no cover, or route, for the trem springs, just a small plate covering access to the output jack wiring.

SOLD!!! Fender Stratocaster Maple Neck Translucent Brown, 1979

SOLD!!! Fender Stratocaster Maple Neck Translucent Brown, 1979

The Fender Stratocaster was a hit from the moment it appeared in 1954, though its advanced features did not knock the Telecaster off the charts. Both continued in production to the present day. Dating to 1979 and built at the Fender plant in Fullerton, California, this Stratocaster has a body stamp for 1978. It is in largely original condition, with the originally poly finish and frets in decent condition.  Along the neck edges, there is some expected chipping and wear of the finish. The body finish has a number of dings and the top may have been cleaned with some sort of solvent as there is some slight pitting.

SOLD!!! Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Maple White 2014

SOLD!!! Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Maple White 2014

The Fender Eric Johnson signature models are built to Johnson’s detailed specifications, including woods and contours, pickup voicing, and hardware choices. It has been available in both Maple and Rosewood fingerboard versions, in a variety of finishes, all a very light nitrocellulose lacquer.
Here we have a 2014 example of the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Maple, in a translucent white finish. Eric Johnson Strat serial numbers aren’t necessarily consecutive, and so short of contacting Fender for shipping information the only way to be sure of the age is to pop the neck off the body and check the dates. On this example, the neck date is May 2 2014, and the body date is June 3, 2014.
