Beautiful vintage hard tail strat that plays and sounds amazing. Frets have were leveled fairly recently and are low but still play very nicely. Keep in mind that these guitars originally had lower fret wire than typical modern guitars. It plays without any kind of fret out and sounds great! It will need refretted next time they are worn down most likely. It has been played and loved. It sounds truly fantastic in ways a floating trem strat cannot. Wonderful sustain and bright yet complex sounding pickups. I believe the only non-original part of the guitar is the nut. When I think "strat," this is the sound. This guitar just has the Hendrix sound in a way most do not. The back and some of the side of the guitar has some clear coat "fuzziness" which you can see in the pics. It was perhaps stored in a case on a towel for a while at some point? Excellent guitar here that I hate to sell. Comes with old style hard case.
