$ 2,799.00

Vintage original 1979 Fender 25th Anniversary Stratocaster.

A nice clean and all original example with Fender original hardshell case.

The Fender Anniversary Stratocaster was unveiled in June, 1979 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster. It was the first Fender instrument to be issued in a pre-determined and numbered, limited quantity. The Anniversary model boasted a few unique features such as:

Exclusive Fender “offset” contoured waist design
A reversion to the four screw bolt-on neck
The abandonment of the “bullet” truss rod adjustment in favor of the vintage style truss rod adjustment at the body end of the neck
The elimination of the MicroTilt[1] neck adjustment
The first Stratocaster to be outfitted with deluxe Sperzel[2] locking tuners
A 6-digit serial number, beginning with 25, stamped on the neck plate which also indicates "1954 - 1979 - 25th Anniversary"; there is no serial number on the decal on the headstock.
An exclusive silver metallic finish, with the commemorative designation of the word "Anniversary" reproduced in black lettering on the upper horn of the body

A nice example perfect for the player and collector alike.
