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 Sunburst, 1957

Here is a Fender Stratocaster built and sold during 1957; the neck date is 10-57, or October. It wears the then-standard two-tone nitrocellulose lacquer tobacco sunburst, with single ply pickguard and of course a V-profile maple neck. The serial number plate is stamped ‘-21305’. The minus sign prefix is specific to the 1957 and 1958 production, with some models alternately having a ‘0’ prefix. Over the years, this guitar has had a number of changes made, and most have been recently repaired in our shop.

❌ 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 ❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Solidbody Guitar, Trans Orange, 2006

❌ SOLD ❌ Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Solidbody Guitar, Trans Orange, 2006

The Ernie Ball Music Man Axis promises and delivers straight ahead rock performance, suited for both high octane playing and lower energy levels. It uses the familiar and reliable recipe of a figured maple top on basswood, with a hard maple neck and locking trem system. The controls couldn’t be much simpler for a two-humbucker guitar – one volume control and a pickup selector.
