    these old 80's strats had vintage fret wire,  its small,  and I have seen a lot of them that are worn and no longer playable without a refrett.   It very possible

    that its an esp body, that had a worn out neck, or based on the pickups in it the previous owner may have just wanted bigger frets. Its not that much money for a

    decent quality USA made replacement neck so if you don't have acess to a good luthier to replace the frets then it eaiser just to replace the neck.    So thats my guess.
