With the entire school under their control and the students turned against each other worse than ever, Sunset contacts Twilight in Equestria to ask for her help in defeating the trio and freeing CHS before whatever scheme they're plotting comes to fruition.
All the pickups work great and the guitar has the sound that gives pre-CBS Strats their legendary status. Neck date October 72, pots date 46th week of '71, grey bottom 'staggered' pickups dated 1972 (2312).The neck, dated May '56, still has the "clubby" pre-V shape typical of '55; it has some wear and original nut and frets. but, compared to the '55 "no-lines" they have again the single-line stamped Kluson Deluxe words. The black-bottom pickups fixed to the single-ply pickguard have the original bakelite covers, two of which are broken from playing wear.The Spaghetti logo on the headstock is in great shape, and next to the original round string-retainer there is another hole, professionally plugged and touched-up, from some mysterious "thing" once screwed to the headstock; whatever it was, it's out of the strings line, in a position which makes meaningless another string-retainer, so I have no explaination for it. Also the tone and volume knobs and the trem-arm and switch tips are made of bakelite. Exceptionally fine conditions for a 40 year-old instrument, really "near mint".Only visible sign of time: light "stress" finish cracks in the neck-joint area, which by the way is perfectly stable and structurally solid with no issues at all. Laminated maple body, rosewood bridge and pearl-block inlaid fingerboard, original Grover Sta-Tites, chesterfield headstock inlay.Pickups have a loud output and are well balanced, and give the guitar a hot and clear sound. The guitar comes with its original black tolex hardshell case with Fender logo.A super clean example of a late-70s Stratocaster in exceptionally fine conditions. It has a 1979 serial number and the grey-bottom pickups are dated 19, so the instrument must have been shipped early in 1980.The finish is original and in good conditions, with some checking and heavy wear on the back, which goes down to the wood. The wear-pattern and a small additional plugged hole from another strap-button on the lower horn, reveal that the previous owner was left-handed and used the guitar upside-down, la Hendrix.All the parts are original: bridge, tuners, circuitry, staggered-pole pickups, potentiometers, three-way selector switch, plastic parts, etc.The original circuitry shows potentiometers date February '56, paper capacitor, intact solder-joints, three way CRL selector switch and Switchcraft jack-socket.The fingerboard shows some wear, but the frets are still in decent condition with lots of room for bending and a nice and easy action.
