Fender / Stratocaster American Standard – 1986 Pre Owned First Edition USA Std / 1986 / Sunburst / Guitar
A truly lovely Strat from the very first year of production in the Corona California factory. This superb example remains in excellent condition with it’s original frets (plenty of life left). In 1986 The very first USA standard Strats came onto the market. It was the first offering from the newly formed Fender company after the management buy out in 1985. These very first USA Standards seem to be becoming quite sought after. Not surprisingly the cost of a brand new USA standard / American Pro strat has risen well into four figures. This example certainly feels like it’s been put together very well, in my opinion it’s quite a bit nicer than the later Standards from the 2000s. It plays beautifully and sounds fantastic! It looks lovely in the classic three tone sunburst finish.
