Fender Stratocaster in factory black finish made in 1974. This killer guitar features an alder body and a maple neck with a bolt-on 3-bolt construction. Equipped with the original Fender grey bottom single-coil pickups with highly sought after staggered pole-pieces dating to 1974 complete with the original pots that date to the 39th week of 1974. The 25.5″ scale length neck dates to 1974 and has a medium 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 original 3-ply white pick-guard shows no signs of shrinking and is complete along with the matching white original Fender knobs, switch tip and pickups covers.

This guitar is in very good condition although it does have heavy finish checking, 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.
