    1982 Fender Stratocaster Smith Era Hardtail Black Electric Guitar # E 203619 WOW! What a cool find. Back in the early 80's, Fender revamped and retooled their electric guitar line. Out went the 3-bolt model Stratocaster. I remember being in New York and seeing one of these in Manny's window on 48th Street. They were so popular that Fender introduced their '57 and '62 reissues quickly thereafter. This guitar has the small headstock and 4-bolt neck. Hardtail means great sustains for your leads. "Eric Clapton, this guitar is all yours!" Super clean. Small area on back upper horn that strap marred from a hot car. Should buff out. Original strap and key in case. Fender black hard case. Condition: Excellent
