1980 Fender Stratocaster
June 20, 2018
1980 Stratocaster Specs: Although the standard model still has the features of the 1976 Stratocaster, Fender adds two new models to the lineup: the “Strat” (image number one below) and the Hendrix. The “Strat” has a smaller, though inaccurate, headstock; a four-bolt neck attachment (and no bullet); and a somewhat hotter bridge pickup called the X-1. It also features a new pickup selection system that allows for nine different combinations. The Hendrix model was a very limited run. Some say 25 were made, and others claim it never got past the building of prototypes. Featured a reversed headstock and four bolt neck. Second image is of a Hendrix headstock.
