Rare 1974 Mocha Brown Stratocaster in Greensboro SC for $2750

This seller is offering a 1974 Fender Strat in the rare Mocha Brown finish.  This is not an inexpensive guitar by any means but I wanted to highlight it bcause you see so few Strats out there in Mocha Brown (just the occasional vintage or RI Tele Deluxe).   This is very much a 70's Strat and the seller says weighs less than 8 lbs!

For sale is a beautiful 1974 Fender Stratocaster. This guitar is a special player - what they call a "ringer". Has been owned and loved for several years by a top notch professional blues, r&b, soul, christian player. Overall in very good condition. Just few signs of use for 38 year old guitar. Weighs in at around 7.5-8lbs. Very balanced. Features a rarer mocha brown finish with rosewood neck and white parts. The has been refretted (amazing job) and the jumbo frets are in perfect shape. They are a nice compliment to the slimmer neck. It just feels really good. The bridge pickup has been replaced with a '57 custom shop reissue, sounds incredible. The neck and middle pickups are the original grey bottom staggered pole pickups, with clear stamp. I do have the original bridge pickup and it will be included, but I believe it needs to be re-wound. Has a 5-way switch which I do not believe to be original, but most strat players would prefer this over the original 3-way. The volume and middle tone pots are original and date to a '74. I am unsure of the bottom tone pot, to my knowledge it has not been replaced, but it does have a different code on it. All electronics function perfect. The case is a G&G Fender RI case. The pictures do not do this guitar justice - it has tons of vibe, and tons of tone! A true gem. Please email me with any questions or for additional pictures. Thanks so much!
