Fender The STRAT (1980)

In Stock. Next Day Delivery order before 3pm

This vintage 1980 Fender The Strat is a curious, engaging offering from The Fender. Following the giant-headstock era of the ‘70s and with the Japanese fully involved in the electric guitar game, The Big F decided it was worth getting with the times, and appointed their guitars accordingly. Of course, a Strat is a Strat, and prior to the multitude of modern incarnations currently floating around the globe, The Fender didn’t want to mess too much with the formula, resulting in a guitar with some interesting details. Built around an Alder body, The Strat is furnished with a lot of brass, which gives it a distinctive, aggressive quality and large extra blob of sustain. The Bridge and The Block are brass. So are The Knobs, The Trem Arm Tip and The Jack Socket, although The Nut is plastic and The Tuners remain in the ‘70s style. The Neck is Maple and topped with a Rosewood fingerboard, and the eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted that The Headstock is a different shape from everything else that The Fender made. Shaved down slightly to give a faster, more modern look, The Logo is still a Spaghetti, but as this decade would see the birth of guitars like The Performer and The Katana, it’s interesting to see the lines of those pointier models creeping into place. In the engine room there’s a trio of The Single Coils wired through The Master Volume, and The Two Tones are present and correct. This guitar has a personality all its own not only within The Fender pantheon but in The History of the Strat itself, so come on down and check it out! Protected by a three-year warranty with The Techs, this vintage 1980 Fender The Strat is available at The Wunjos with a hard case as standard.
