1974 Fender Stratocaster White

Here's a killer and super vibey Strat that has some stories to tell. People try to fake this relic look, but it can really only be earned with years of hard, honest work. After years in the clubs, this Olympic White Stratocaster has turned an amazing butterscotch-y color. Even better, this '74 sounds sweeter than it looks. It has the articulate and expressive tone that Strats are known for with this nice set of staggered pole pickups. At only 7.5 lbs it's also the perfect weight, nicely balanced and comfortable (which is what they were originally designed to be!). Leo himself would be proud of this lively and resonant Stratocaster. In '74 Fender still had some of that good old wood.

Cosmetic Condition:

This one is super cool and gnarly in spots. No big dings or dents, but plenty of nicks, scratches and paint chips. The clear coats of finish have yellowed significantly. There were once some stickers spelling out JAF on the upper cutaway and the finish faded around them. The stickers have long been removed but the JAF remains. There's also some faint weather checking throughout the guitar. The pickguard is cracked in a few spots.

Repairs & Mods:

It's really hard to wreck a Fender. Even with all the wear there have been no cracks or breaks. It looks like some of the electronic connections have been re-soldered but all pots date to late '73. The guitar also had another set of tuners on it at one point but there are no extra holes showing with the original F tuners back on the instrument. A thin layer of maple lifted on the headstock face by the high E tuner from this tuner swap.

Feel & Playability:

You'll be right at home on this medium C shaped neck. Very easy playing action, light weight, and has that great broken-in feel. The frets are good and still have good height left.
