SKU: 44066147 Categories: ,


Fender Stratocaster in factory black finish made in 1976. This killer guitar features an alder body and a maple neck with a bolt-on 3-bolt construction. Equipped with period correct Fender grey bottom single-coil pickups with the original pots that date to the 6th week of 1976. The 25.5″ scale length neck dates to 1976 and has a Slender C shape neck profile and black dot inlays. The original “F” Style tuning machines and original 6-saddle Fender bridge are in fantastic condition and keep excellent tuning stability. The period correct but unoriginal 3-ply black pick-guard looks very sharp with the original white Fender knobs, pickup covers and switch tip and is very similar to the look of David Gilmour’s famous black Fender Stratocaster.

This guitar is in excellent condition although with very little signs of wear. It does have very light surface scratches and various dings and dents (see photos). Freshly re-strung with 9-42 gauge strings and setup in standard tuning this guitar plays fantastic, looks badass and the original staggered pole-piece pickups sounds incredible! Comes with Fender late 60’s/early 70’s hardshell case with orange interior.
