FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Stratocasters / Stratocaster 1979



Nov 12th, 2016 04:48 AM   Edit   Profile  

Hey guys!

My first post on this forum where I would like to use your knowledge about this guitar.

I'm interested in buying this 1979 guitar, but am not sure if it's the real deal. Serial looks okay, same for Pickupnr. and saddle number but according to http://www.strat-central.com/70sstrats there where no red strats made in 1979.

Another thing: it doesn't seem to be a 1979 case...

I would like to hear your opinion. Ohyeah, price asked: €1.500 (usdollar: 1.628).

Looks more likely '81 based on the color and case interior color, but the only way to tell for sure is to take the neck off and look at the date stamp. It does look in decent shape, and certainly from that era if not exactly 1979. I reckon it's worth exactly what someone will pay for it. ;-)

The neck looks pretty authentic so do the grey pickups but can't say much about the body except that it could be a 1981 Morocco Red.
