Fender Stratocaster Maui Blue 1980
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2012-01-28)
Price : US $ 1390
As memory from 30plus years ago is blurred I checked on - http://www.guitardaterproject.org/fender.aspx & got this - Guitar Info: Your guitar was made at the Fullerton Plant (Fender - CBS Era), USA
in the Year(s): 1978 - 1981, but Im fairly sure this is a 1980
Fender: Fullerton - The Fullerton factory opened in 1946, Fullerton California with the first major electric solid body guitar production began in 1950 with the Broadcaster (later known as the Telecaster). Sold in 1965 to CBS who in 1985 sold Fender to a group of private investors the plant was not included in that sale and was subsequently closed.
Fender International Color Series Guitars and Basses in 1980. Maui Blue is the most beautiful of those colors & I think the rarest. The guitar is in incredible condition (not just for its age) The colour is strong and unfaded.
I bought some new stings for it - when I went to clean/dust/wipe the fret board I noticed some of the laquer has come off - in between the 1st & 2nd fret 6mmx5mm, between 2nd & 3rd 15mmx4mm + between 4th & 5th 20mmx6mm otherwise the laquer on the neck & fretboard are not showing any sign of wear. This Guitar has never been out of the house in my ownership & I suspect never Gigged,the neck is super clean, and has no edge wear. Guitar functions perfectly, was set-up to be sold checked when I got it back & has never needed anything but a string change. No repairs, no changes, All original with the Original Fender USA Hard shell case.
