PRELOVED FENDER American Standard Strat 1983

The 1983 Fender Stratocaster Guitar holds a special place in the hearts of guitar enthusiasts and collectors alike, representing a unique era in Fender's history. Produced during a period of transition and innovation for the iconic guitar manufacturer, the 1983 Stratocaster showcased a blend of classic design elements and modern updates that set it apart from its predecessors.

One of the most notable features of the 1983 Fender Stratocaster is its introduction of the "Elite" series, which marked a departure from traditional Stratocaster design conventions. These guitars featured several innovative enhancements aimed at providing players with greater versatility and performance capabilities.

One key innovation found in the 1983 Fender Stratocaster Elite was the incorporation of Fender's groundbreaking "Freeflyte" tremolo system. Unlike traditional tremolo bridges, the Freeflyte system utilized a unique design that allowed for smoother operation and improved tuning stability, even during heavy use. This innovation was a testament to Fender's commitment to pushing the boundaries of guitar technology while maintaining the classic Stratocaster sound and feel.

In terms of aesthetics, the 1983 Fender Stratocaster retained the timeless design elements that have made the Stratocaster an enduring icon in the world of electric guitars. Its sleek, contoured body, comfortable "C" shaped neck, and trio of single-coil pickups remained unchanged, paying homage to the guitar's storied legacy while embracing the spirit of innovation that defined the 1980s.

Today, the 1983 Fender Stratocaster continues to be highly sought after by collectors and players seeking a piece of guitar history. Its combination of classic design, modern features, and innovative technology make it a true gem in the Fender lineup and a cherished instrument for musicians around the world.

A near perfect example of this era Stratocaster, this 1983 Strat Includes Original Fender Hard Shell Case and Tremolo Arm.  Serial Number indicates that this was a 1983 guitar, however the Fender Factory Check Sheet in the case indicates this may not have shipped from Fender until 1984.
