About This Listing

**Photos were taken outside and are a very accurate visual representation to how it appears in person with the naked eye**

We have a really nice See Thru Blonde Strat here, looks great with that translucent finish on the Ash body with the wide grain pattern visible throughout on front and back. Not the most common finish in the world, and this one is particularly exceptional has spent a lot of time in it's case and has not been very faded like most examples but there is definitely some yellowish tones depending on certain lighting in different environments. There is also some numbers etched on the neck pate near the upper left phillip's head screw and can be seen in the 13th photo. She's pretty light and comfortable too for a late 70's Strat and weighs in at 7.7 lbs on our scale here. The frets are in really good shape and have plenty of life in em, neck is a nice C shape slightly on the slimmer side in our hands with a 1 5/8" nut width. Comes with the OHSC that is also in quite excellent shape for it's age. See photo's for visual details of blemishes and dates on the pups, neck, body, pots etc.... And pleae see our embedded Youtube video so you can hear this guitar before purchase, **Please note: the guitar in the YouTube video is the same guitar pictured in the listing. We're mentioning this because the video states several times that it is a 1979 Strat, that was just a minor error, it's a 1978, please photo's for details. Just wanted to clarify in advance so that there is no confusion as to what is up for sale** 

Thanks for looking, Cost of shipping includes full insurance, for peace of mind to you the purchaser. Hope you have a great day!
