Product Description

Fender USA Stratocaster Dan Smith 1983

The late ’70s through the early ’80s marked the last few years of CBS as Fender’s evil overlord. Enter the Dan Smith Strat. Its features were clearly meant to evoke a visual return to Fender’s glory years. Gone are the big Chevy Monte Carlo Fender-looking headstock, the Bullet truss rod adjustment, and the dreaded 3-bolt neck.

The Dan Smith Strat featured a 4-bolt neck, a cavity on headstock for truss rod adjustment, and pre-1966-shaped headstock. The CBS block letter logo was still applied to the smaller headstock, which made it look kind of awkward. The bridge is the same cast saddle bridge you should find on a ’70s Strat. The “Smith Strat” was only issued only in 1982, and is generally thought of as an improvement over ‘70s models. The 2-Knob “New for 1983” Stratocaster Model
After a half decade with no model changes, 1982 brought the Dan Smith Strat and its many changes. But in 1983, yikes. The result: a completely redesigned Stratocaster (and Telecaster). This was CBS Fender’s last design before selling the company, and production briefly went to Japan while the new Fender company re-tooled, and prepared for USA production.
