Here we have a very clean example of a rare axe, a 1982 Fender Stratocaster with a hardtail bridge. Aside from the obvious simplicity and tuning stability, the lack a back cavity gives these instruments a different tone that’s is a bit tighter. Perhaps the most famous player of a hardtail Strat would be Billy Gibbons, who famously played one on the solo for “La Grange”. This guitar is a real looker with a super clean Sienna Burst finish that is only blemished on the back and bottom, with only some light pick scratches on the top. This piece is also all original, save for having replaced pots. This guitar has a great heft to it that is not very common in Strats. The tone is very classic and twangy, and it has great playability to match. Ships in its original molded plastic case.
