1985 Fender MIJ Contemporary Deluxe StratocasterFantastic Mid 80s MIJ Strat from the contemporary collection. This is the HH deluxe model with the System III trem. Burgundy mist finish. 22 fret Rosewood fingerboard. The frets do show minimal sign of wear. Locking Fender Tuners. Thumb wheel Locking Nut. The pickups are the original German made Schallers and the same type as used in the Esprit and Flame models. The system III trem is ingenious if a little confusing at times. It can be locked to a hardtail with a turn of the trem arm and the restring involves some unusual bending of the string at the ball end to get them to lock in. The trem angle can be adjusted by an allen key adjust ment by the back strap button. The trem arm is an aftermarket replacement - it cost nearly £40 to purchase and ship the arm to the UK. The electrics are controlled by a master volume , TBX tone control , 3 way switch and coil tap switch. Its in used condition with some dings , scrapes and marks. The guitar weighs 3.87Kg or 8.5Lb. The nut width is 43mm. Great player and killer sounding Strat!
