Fender Strat original lefty
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-20)
Price : US $1,104.
One owner Fender lefty Stratocaster, made in USA (they all were then...). I bought this guitar new at Sam Ash on 48th st. in NYC back in 1983, and still have the hang tags, the original bill of sale, the stamped warranty card and owners manual. This was my main guitar from then until a couple years ago, for both hundreds of gigs and numerous studio sessions.
This guitar is set up for playing with graphtech saddles and a graphite nut. It isn't cosmetically perfect given the usage it's seen over the years, but it does still look good. There are several chips in the finish on the bottom of the body (off and on stands for over 25 years), but overall it cleans up well, and plays great. The wear in the neck's finish is testament to how much I used this guitar as my 'go to' axe. It comes with an SKB hard shell case. This Strat has a three bolt neck and a serial # showing 1978 as its build date. I bought it new in 1983 and have the warranty card to prove it. I guess there wasn't much demand for lefty guitars back then...
I no longer play gigs and now I realize that its time for this great axe to make music in someone else's hands.
Good luck, and happy bidding! Take good care of her, she deserves a good home.
