During this historic transition for the Stratocaster®, several major changes were made, including a flat lamb rosewood fingerboard, white clay position dots, and an 11-hole pickguard (1ply until July of this year). 
Leo Fender has a personality that does not waste parts, and since it was used up until the parts were completely exhausted, various unique combinations of parts can be seen during the transition period. This model faithfully reproduces that rare combination.


The carefully selected 2-piece alder body (ash is used for the aged white blonde model) is given a Heavy Releic nitrocellulose lacquer finish to express the look and feel of attachment. The liftthorn maple neck features an Oval "C" neck shape, 9.5 inch radius flat lamb rosewood fingerboard and 21 jumbo frets for comfortable bending. The hand-wound Texas Special pickups are connected to a 5-way switch and vintage modified # 2 wiring and feature a rare 11-hole 1-ply parchment pickguard. In addition, vintage style synchronized tremolo, vintage style tuning machine, bone nut, wing string tree with metal spacer, etc. are adopted. Comes with a deluxe hard shell case, strap and genuine product certificate.
