    Default 1983 Fender Yellow Bowling Ball Stratocaster #2

    Here is one of two Fender Yellow Bowling Ball Strats that I used to own. Out of 250 total Bowing Ball Strats produced 105 had the gold-silver-white swirl finish.

    The guitar was configured with:

    Small headstock w/2 string retainers
    Fender silver transition logo
    Fender chrome die-cast tuners
    Maple neck w/21 fret maple or rosewood fretboard
    Biflex truss rod
    4-bolt neck w/microtilt adjusting screw
    Freeflyte tremolo system
    Chrome plated die-cast bridge saddles
    Snap on Torq-Master trem arm
    Single-ply white pickguard with 12 mounting screws
    3 single-coil pickups with flush polepieces
    Contoured Alder body without the vibrato cavity
    Jack-plug on pickguard

    These bowling ball guitars are very cool. Wonder if this is where James Tyler got the idea for his 'shmear' finishes?

    I love the finish on this guys! I've started looking for Tylers since watching this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LY-vPenUKJY
