1972 Fender Stratocaster


Out of stock

Natural, rare rosewood fretboard. This is an odd example as the Natural finish was introduced in ’73. But dealers rarely ordered rosewood fretboard strats in this era.

The guitar looks and sounds great but the electronics and plastics are all changed, as well as two routs in the body for humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. A quick warning, the previous owner bought this from an online dealer who failed to mention these facts. Now it is loaded with new Fender Custom Shop pots, caps and Abigail Ybarra signed pickups.

As you can see in the photos it’s stamped Natural from the factory but has routs that aren’t humbucker sized. You can see what a previous owner did. We can’t guess why.

The neck is stock and has a nice rounded feel. The rosewood board adds a bit darker tone to the note. It has the original tuners, bridge and tremolo.

So a great playing and sounding Strat with great sounding Custom Shop Abby pickups, original tuners, bridge, finish, neck and body. A great looking ash grained body that weighs in at 8.5 pounds. Comes with a deluxe Fender Custom Shop hard case.
