Hi, I was wondering if anyone on this forum could help me out with this Fender I bought at a local shop. I have a few tokais and burnys but don't know much about actual fenders, could anyone here help me out with year, model etc.

Here are some pictures, sorry about the quality.

Ok thanks, because i bought it blindly because i liked the feel of the guitar (which i normally wouldn't do). I'll have a look.

Cheers.

Congrats on the guitar.
This would have been the competition to Tokai's ST-80 in 1982.
Hope to se it someday . .
