1982 Stratocaster Specs: The Standard Stratocaster is introduced at the January, 1982, Winter NAMM Show. Also known as the “Dan Smith Stratocaster,” it features a look back to the pre-CBS period: four bolt neck attachment, body end truss rod adjustment (no headstock bullet), and a smaller, pre-CBS headstock (though the large, black, CBS-style logo is retained until 1983). The Standard Stratocaster also features the X-1 bridge pickup first introduced in the 1980 “Strat” (which accounts for the yellow wire leading from the bridge pickup in the sixth image below). Also introduced this year are two “reissue” models: the 1957 and 1962 American Vintage Reissues. The images below are of a 1982 Standard “Dan Smith” Stratocaster.
