 Here is a sweet Fender Strat from 1978. It is in great condition with not much wear to report. The pickups sound loud and clear, just everything you would expect from a Strat. This guitar is all original with four placed intonation screws.

The neck reads 0903-2183. 09 means it’s a Strat, 03 means it’s a fretted maple neck, 21 is the week number of the year, 8 is the last digit of the year so 1978, and 3 is the day of the week, so all in all it’s a maple strat neck from the Wednesday of the 21st week of 1978. In general that’s how neck dates from 1969-80 can be read. 
Some are hard to read but the pickups date the 23rd week of 1978. This guitar has a 1979 serial but the 70’s/80’s/90’s serials that start with the first letter of the decade are generally really off after only a couple years of using that system. Since everything else is so consistently dated we say it’s a '78 model year.

Serial #S905277, comes with the original hard shell case.
