1979 Fender Stratocaster Translucid Red

Here is a splendid example of Stratocaster dating from 1979. Obviously manufactured at Fender in the Fullerton, California factory.
This model is all the more spectacular when you notice its neck made from sumptuous curly maple. To which is added the very good quality of its ash body. No wonder the finish is translucent given the admirable quality of the woods used.
