25th Anniversary Stratocaster, 1979. The silver version, (“Porsche Silver”), in AMAZING condition. Unlike many of these, the paint has not turned green or gold, but is still as gorgeously silver as when it left the Fender factory 42 years ago.
Famous seventies Strat tone
With that famous seventies Strat tone, that powered so many # 1 worldwide hits, you gain extra cutting power here with 10lb 2oz of solid Ash body – definitely into the same territory as Les Paul weight – which all translates into classic tone, plus a ringing eleven seconds of natural sustain!
As we noted at the front, cosmetically, the guitar is in absolutely stunning condition. Other than some playwear on the scratchplate, there’s no dings, no scratches, no anything to detract from the pristine silver finish. Frets are like new, the Maple fingerboard is like new, the bridge cover “ashtray” is like new. There’s no wear on either the headstock logos or the ANNVERSARY logo on the bass-side horn. The knobs and pickups look like they left the Fender factory in Corona yesterday.
Serial numbers on the 25th Anniversary model all began with 25, with production ending at 9999, which places our model here, at 254741, bang in the middle of the run.
