That is a great looking guitar, IMO.

When I got it it wasn't NEAR that yellowed, supposedly it started it's life as vintage white, according to the previous owner.

Crazy how fast some finishes age.

Guess it was that 3 packs of cigarettes a day and all the beer I spilled on it.

LOL

Kidding, I don't smoke and it never left my closet.

It's a great color with the maple neck. One of my all time favorite color combos.

I took it to practice Wed. evening. It plays well and sounds well...not to mention, it weighs 7.1 lbs. My Baja Tele weighs 7.6 and that's my heaviest.

Blacksunshine, I really can't thank you enough for letting it go. It will get plenty of playtime, that's for sure.

My hand and fingers love the 12” radius...as I remember they did 20 years ago with the first 83.

Very cool, Jim. I have to rely on my memory which isn't all that great. I remember the pickups were great and I especially liked the bridge pup.

Wow Richard, thanks and it has been awhile.
How you doing?

I'm doing well thank you, sir. I got away from guitars several years ago and have just picked up another Strat and I've been spending a lot of time practicing over the last week.

How are you doing?

Great to hear from you.

I'm still alive although I keep having heart attacks. Three so far in the last ten years.

I'm doing well though. Playing in the church worship band for the last 8 years.

Be careful with that heart. I had a triple when I was 45. That was 18 years ago. Life changes after heart surgery, eh?

Oh yeah, I have 3 stents.

The attacks seem to hurt more each time. Orrrr, it could be, not saying it is, that I’m older? I’m “getting older”, is a good one.

Man, you were young. Glad you stuck around.

Guitar is good therapy for a lot of things.

Played the 83 in church today. I liked the sound a lot. The bridge pickup held it's own for lead things. Used all three pickups actually. Very nice. The 12" radius was good for my fingers.

I have had a 1983 Strat since I bought it new in 1983. It's my favorite player and I have a few nice guitars.

stl, that’s great. And to think, it’s still your favorite.
I can see why. That’s why I bought this one because the one I had years ago haunted me until I got another.

I like the quack switch setting but I have been mostly using the neck pickup lately.

Glad you like are enjoying it. I had a SRV with a 12" radius and the neck on that thing was killer.

Due to foot surgery I haven’t been able to play mine for a month. I’ll be glad to plug it in again.
Everything about this guitar is killer but that’s my opinion.
