Price : US $2,175
100% original vintage 1979 Three Tone Sunburst Stratocaster with a rare sought after rosewood neck option.
The serial number on this guitar is S949735. This is a very clean, investment grade Strat, that has barely been played and kept in it's hardshell case for most of it's life. Everything is the way it was when it left the factory including the original hardshell case, tremolo arm, and even the adjustment wrenches for the saddles and truss rod.
Now to how it looks. The finish is undoubtedly a rare Brown Sunburst a.k.a Brown Burst Stratocaster. There were only a handful of these that were made and they are significantly different from the regular 3 tone sunburst models which fade from yellow to black. The brown burst fades from yellow, red and finally to dark brown on the edges. The Brown color can be distinguished against the Black Pickguard and knobs. The body is completely original to the guitar and has never been routed for any other type of circuitry. There is one ding located at the tip of the lower horn, which is really teeny and approximately three faint dings which are only in the clear coat on the back of the guitar. There's also a couple on the top sides of the guitar. These are almost impossible to see. All the hardware on the guitar is completely original with no rust or pitting anywhere. The tuners and bridge very clean despite it's age.
