Light alder body, three-bolt and 'tilt-neck adjustment' maple neck, large headstock with black logo.Black is one of the most sought-after custom colors, since Jimi Hendrix often used black Strats with large headstocks. Exceptionally fine conditions for a 40 year-old instrument, really "near mint".Only visible sign of time: light "stress" finish cracks in the neck-joint area, which by the way is perfectly stable and structurally solid with no issues at all. Laminated maple body, rosewood bridge and pearl-block inlaid fingerboard, original Grover Sta-Tites, chesterfield headstock inlay.This 62-style reissue has a very nice rosewood board over a lightly figured maple-neck.Neck date is Jan 27th 1983 and pots are dated 26th week of '82.
The original finish has lots of checking and wear on both sides, showing the beautiful figure in the wood.Custom color's rarity, light weight and sound make of this guitar a winner.Excellent action, smooth and easy maple fretboard with frets in good condition.Very nice look, the body has a beautiful finish and wood-grain.The weight is acceptable if compared to other ash-bodied Strats from the same era. Smooth action, frets and fretboard are in excellent shape.
