The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Fender Cherryburst Stratocaster, 1979


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Built during 1979 in Fullerton, California, this Fender Cherryburst Stratocaster is in good clean and original condition, with light finish checking.

In constant production since its 1954 introduction, the Fender Stratocaster quickly established itself as one of the most versatile and reliable instruments, suitable for every genre that accepts the electric guitar.

This Fender Cherryburst Stratocaster features an Ash body, paired with an Indian Rosewood-fingerboard Maple neck. The neck also has a walnut ‘Skunk Stripe’ and side-dot position markers in the Maple edge below the rosewood, suggesting a factory blend of Maple and Rosewood necks. The white-black-white pickguard carries the standard Strat pickups, and the 5-way switch introduced in 1977. It also features the ‘Bullet’ truss rod that allowed neck adjustments without removing the neck, and the three-bolt ‘Micro Tilt’ neck joint.

Sold with its original hard shell case.
