The knobs are definitely non-original but it looks good otherwise. Maybe ask for pot code and neck stamp pictures as well? And if those check out, just buy it for $3000 - I would.

If weight matters to you, you may wanna find out what it weighs because a lot of those 70s fenders get up top 10 Lbs or more. Best to be safe and not sorry unless a 10 Lb tele is fine with you. Generally 8.5 Lbs or so is considered quite heavy so 10 is a boat anchor.

He had it cleaned and restrung at local GC. They offered him $2500. Serial shows 1976.

I'd be surprised if GC offered anywhere near that sorta dough... With their new business model, they don't come off the skins for buying used gear quite like they used to, IMO. Nonetheless, nothing seems to jump out at me from what I can see. Of course, it's been 40+ years so.... who knows what's going on electronically.

In that era serial numbers only give a rough guide, so it would be good to see neck code. Plus point is the gasket under the neck plate which would be period correct.

My thoughts are that in 5-10 years ****e 80s strats are going to be selling for $10k. The world has gone crazy
Now is the time to buy 70’s fenders, with the price of the 60’s models so high it creates a demand the 80’s will of course follow, I don’t think they will get quite as high except for the reissues
