Some 25th anniversary blurb:-
In 1979, Fender celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Stratocaster (introduced in 1954) with the first "anniversary" instrument, and the first Fender instrument to be issued in a pre-determined and numbered, limited quantity.The first 500 or so instruments produced were finished in Pearl White. However, due to the instability of the finish and the checking that resulted, many were recalled and re-finished in Porsche Silver (though Fender refers to it as "25th Anniversary Stratocaster Silver"), the color that was used in the rest of the production run.The 1979 Anniversary Stratocaster is significant for a number of reasons. It represents both a look behind and a look ahead for Fender.

The commemorative designation appears on the front. A four bolt chrome neck plate marks the dates "1954-1979."What you hear are those three famous wide-ranging pickups, synchronized tremolo that comes back to pitch every time, precise intonation thanks to individual bridge adjustments and the Stratocaster's legendary fast, easy action.
