NGD 1986 Fender Japan Contemporary Strat

Just got this '86 Contemporary Strat today for $400.00 Sweet guitar. All original with OHSC and all candy. Just had to share. They just don't build them like this anymore, unfortunately. This thing has some weight to it.

Strats are a lot heavier than most people would imagine.

That they are my friend. How are you doing by the way? I don't get to pop in as often as I would like.

That's sweet dude. I dig the bridge, and that nut looks crazy. I've never seen anything like that. What's the little flat bar thing on the right side of the nut do?

It locks the bridge. I think it was Fenders version of a locking nut.

It acts as kind of a channel lock. So, instead of having to use the typical Allen wrench things, that is actually a lever that locks all the string at the nut with the flick of that one lever. You'll notice a little thumb screw on the other side of the nut, that adjusts the amount of tension that the lever applies to the locking nut, again the same basic concept of channel locks. Such a great little invention. No tools needed at all to lock and unlock the locking nut. Works perfectly. I took it out for a test spin tonight and it worked flawlessly. Such a cool little axe.
