The X-1 two-way rotary switch which replaced the lower tone control gives you four more sounds. The X-1 is a passive circuit, no 9 volt batteries to replace, ever!The Lake Placid Blue finish still retains its original luster and there are no bad nicks, or dings on the body or neck other than normal play wear. The beautiful rosewood neck has pearl fret markers and black side markers. The frets still retain 75% of use.
The neck shape is a little bit beefier than the newer Fender C shape but not as pronounced as a U shape. The polyurethane finish on the back of the maple neck is as smooth as glass. There are a few fine finish stress lines, one on the body near the neck and one on the back of the head-stock. Along with the standard five-way switch, it comes with original strap buttons, chrome Fender logo tuners, brass high-mass vibrato bridge, whammy bar with gold tip, gold finish volume, tone and X-1 circuit select knobs and a gold input jack cover. Comes with the "Strat" Owner's Manual.
