'84 USA Strat Video - rare-ish "2 knob" Stratocaster

Here's a new vid featuring my twenty-five year old Fender "cost cutter - two knob" USA Strat. I bought it new in 84, and it's a sweet American made guitar. This is the 83-84 model with the "Freeflyte" top loader trem, and the input jack where the 2nd tone knob would usually go. No input jack or back route - really weird if you've never seen one.

Thing is, they're really good guitars. I've put a ton of info on the 83-84s on this blog post - if you're a Strat geek, check it out. Those were rough times for Fender, but it's a great guitar, and kinda unique. I used a video camera with XLR ins and dumped the audio into protools, so it's not the usual YouTube guitar sound.

Thanks guys - MC
