Here is a beautiful 1986 original Fender Contemporary Fender Stratocaster from the mid 1980's.  This is a SSS config with E Series Maple Neck in Pristine condition.  In fact the whole guitar from the bridge to the locking nut and tuners and all inbetween are absolutely breath taking for it's age.  There may be a small cat scratch I can't picture and I don't see.  
I got this guitar in mint condition as shown and was totally in awe of it's beauty.  I went over the guitar, and decided to put these great sounding Gold Fender Lace Sensors and add a 60's grounding plate for the CTS pots And Millard Tropical Fish Film Capacitor 10%Tolerance. .47 uf (micro ferrets) for that great authentic 62 sound.
The Maple/Maple neck is pristine with 22, 100% clean medium large frets. In fact this beautiful Neck is so clean and hardly used down through the years.  You can see the tan line under the Locking Nut in picture #10.  Neck is straight as an arrow with double rod for perfectly straight neck 3/16 allen wrench adjustment nut.  For a 30 year old vintage.. The bridge is in near perfect condition with Chrome snap in bar and Fender system One locking nut.. all the parts all original.  A collector and a player.. The brass chrome plated rollers still have the chrome on them and are in perfectly round condition for that roll effect that doesn't pull the strings and stretch them like most bridges, but the strings roll over them creating a smoother dive bomb and sustain when locked down with all the original locking plates in the FS1 locking nut. I still do have the original loaded pick guard and will put it up as well..
This beautiful authentic Fender Contemporary Stratocaster is so nice I had to envelope it in a brand new Fender G&G Zebra Case with Keys..  Don't let this one get away.. These E series guitars were the creme of the crop in the 80's.. because it's vintage with removable original parts there are no refunds or returns for any reason.  If you want me to post a youtube I will be happy to.. 
shipping USPS Priority 2 day mail.. 3 day west coast.    rock on.
