Tuners are staggered height Die-cast Deluxe Fender units, the bridge is the 2 point Synchronised Tremolo unit. Plastics are white with a 3-ply pickguard and spring cover and white pickup covers, knobs and switch tip.
Bought new by the previous owner in 2000, he wanted a Blonde guitar with a maple neck but the shop only had a Natural Strat with Maple neck so the necks were swapped over. The guitar is in great overall condition, there are a couple of small nicks and bumps (the most noticeable being the behind the 4th fret on the neck) and some minor fret wear but nothing you wouldn’t expect of a near 25 year old instrument. Playability is excellent and the Delta Tone System leads to a very versatile sounding Stratocaster.
The guitar comes with its original Fender moulded Hardshell case with key, Tremolo arm, Allen keys, Schaller Strap locks and hang tag. (with the 721 natural colour code).
