A nice smooth player with moderate wear all around, this thick-neck Strat is a nice piece falling right on the cusp of Fender’s late-‘60s features. A couple notes of Strat decal minutae—this Strat has one patent number on the headstock decal, marking it from late 1970, as Fender switched from two numbers to one in the middle of the year. However, the decal does say, “with synchronized tremolo,” a note that was eliminated in 1970. So it may be from around the middle of the year, perhaps.
