Cosmetic Condition: This pre-CBS Strat is straight up oozing with character! There is some hefty checking throughout and the top has some pick / play wear, dings, and patches of chipping where the checking is most intense. The sides have some chips and dings all the way around and the back is loaded with scratches, chips, and some buckle rash patches down to the raw wood. The neck has some dings and patches of finish wear and the headstock has some finish scratching and light dings around the edges. This isn't just a Strat; this guitar is a piece of history!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: There is some touched up solder on tone cap. The guard appears to have been colored blue and then sanded back down to original white. The trem arm is missing and a few screws have been replaced. The switch tip has been replaced tip and the trem cover has cracked corner
