As many guitar aficionados know, the early 80s were a transitional time for Fender. Coming out of the CBS era, there was a new spirit of innovation as well as a back to basics attitude. Fender went from the big headstock, bullet truss rod guitars into the sleeker "Smith" Strats of the early 80s. A few years in the future was the modern American Standard. In between the Smith Strat and the modern American Standards came the 1983 revised Standard Strats. These came with a pickguard mounted jack and trem springs under the guard. The body is alder for great tone. The 25.5 inch scale maple neck features a maple fingerboard with 21 frets. American Standard tuners and the Freeflyte Trem (Including arm) The finish is a gorgeous Sienna Sunburst. A really cool guitar priced for the player!This Strat plays and sounds great. The neck is straight, the frets are good and the action is fine. A nice player. The pickups deliver Trademark Strat Spank. Everything works as it should.
