Dating a 70s strat


The Fender Contemporary models were the first Fender Japan models to be exported as Fender Stratocasters and Telecasters.The previous Fender Japan models exported from Japan were all Fender Squier models.The slightly wider pivot screw spacing of the System 1 bridge needs a Floyd Rose licensed bridge design with one pivot screw cutaway that extends to the edge of the bridge allowing the Floyd Rose licensed bridge to mount onto the System 1 pivot screws.This configuration is most common in a "Floyd Rose Gotoh" bridge.The single coil pickups used in the Contemporary models have a DC resistance which is approximately 5.6 kΩ.The Contemporary models that use a TBX tone control use 500 kΩ volume pots and use 0.022 µF tone capacitors.The Fender Contemporary models were manufactured from 1984 to 1987 by Fuji Gen Gakki and these Stratocasters were designed to be Superstrats (Super Strat) with humbucking pickups and Floyd Rose like tremolos made by Schaller and Kahler.There was a lower priced Fender Contemporary Squier model produced as well.
