Nothing much to say on this one. Just a good quality Stratocaster copy with mojo to spare. The patina on this one is just perfect. *Chef’s Kiss* This one was certainly made in Japan or Korea, as it shares some similarities with other MIJ and MIK strats of the era I have seen in my career.

The body is made of mahogany, I believe. The neck is 2 pc maple with a rosewood fretboard and the post-lawsuit era headstock. There are only mild to-be-expected scratches and dings in the neck, but nothing structural. A previous owner flipped the football jack cup and I left it because I thought it fit the look of the guitar.

Like more 1970s and / or lawsuit era stuff, this guitar is not light. Weighs in at 8 lbs – 9 lbs. Not a complete boat anchor, but not what I would call lightweight. In all honestly it is a KILLER guitar. Vintage quality in a pretty cheap package.

As always, I replaced the strings, polished it up, flushed the electronics and set the action as low as possible. This guitar comes with no case or gig bag, but I pack my guitars up tight and insure every package with full insurance.

Got questions? Shoot me a message, I love nerding out with other gearheads!
