⭕ Thats right, you are looking at a GENUINE PIECE OF FENDER HISTORY!par

This is the ORIGINAL version of the 1979 Twenty-fifth Anniversary Fender Stratocaster, done up in its original whitewash finish! This is an INCREDIBLY RARE specimen - I challenge you to find another anywhere in the WORLD in comparable condition.par

For those who dont know, heres a brief history lesson of these guitars:par
par
* In 1979, to recognize the 25th anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster, Fender released a special commemorative edition model of the guitar.par
* An initial run of approximately 500 guitars was made, finished in a general white finish with the word Anniversary on the upper horn of the guitar.par
* The white finish originally used, however, was water-based. This made it extremely unstable and subject to cracking and flaking - in a BIG way.
* Of that original run of 500 guitars, virtually every single unit was found to have severe finish cracks and checking in a very short time after production. Many guitars had paint checks peel and curl right off the wood. The water-based paint proved to be serious mistake!
* Fender offered all who purchased those earliest the guitars the option to have the guitar re-finished in Porsches silver automotive paint. Many took them up on the offer, so a huge number of those early white-painted releases are gone forever, refinished and assimilated into the general population as Porsche-silver Anniversary Strats!
So think of the numbers ... you start out with 500 guitars. You paint many of them over with silver paint. Some of the others remain white, but virtually all have so much checking, chipping, and peeling of the white paint that very little - if any - actually remains on the body of the guitar.
