About This Listing

A rare opportunity to purchase an original, unmodified 1979 USA 25th Anniversary Stratocaster in Metallic Silver. This one is in incredible condition for its age and has been exceptionally well looked after and rarely played, there is no damage to the guitar and it is unmolested in original condition.

The frets are original with plenty of life left and have no wear of significance. All electronics are working perfectly with no crackles or issues. The only thing of note is that the 5 way switch feels a little vague and is not as crisp as it was but is working in all positions. If you are planning to gig this guitar we would recommend replacing the 5 way with a genuine Fender unit (just in case you knocked the switch whilst playing). This strat plays and sounds really well and has a nice neck with low action. If you are looking for affordable vintage tone this is it!

Please keep in mind this is a 40 year old used guitar - if you are looking for a perfect, as new guitar - vintage guitars just might not be the one for you. I can however say this is the best condition vintage guitar we've ever come across and is in time warp condition.

This one might be one of the cleanest on the market right now - a true investment. 70s Fenders are always going up in value with some of the pre cbs 60s models unaffordable to most....

Everything on the guitar is original, completely unmodified and includes the original case, manual, lead and tremolo.

Grab an original 70s Fender at less than custom shop price!
