This guitar may have left the factory in 1980 or 1981 but the serial number is the 79 type number seen on these late CBS guitars. This guitar weighs 7 pounds 13 ounces so not a heavy one. The Translucent Green color is original and pretty rare. I did see a Stratocaster this color a few years ago. This one has a replaced bridge pickup. It is pretty original otherwise. The pickguard is original but not from this guitar. This guitar has been dear to me as a shop mascot for years. Now it is can be released into the wild to live a full life.
