    Mid 1960 Fender Stratocaster in an eye-catching Coral Pink refinish, aged wonderfully and reliced by time. There are no signs of modification or repair. 

    Neck finish is original. It's been refretted with some work having been carried out at the top of the fretboard to fill in. The neck date reads 5 - 60. The decal looks correct as are the tuners and all the hardware. An extra strap button hole has been added just by the neck heel.

    All hardware is correct and is in excellent condition considering. The plastics too are in excellent condition.

    Electrically, all three pickups have their original formvar windings. Both correct pots are all dated week 34 of 1960. One tone control has been changed however the original is in the case.

    The guitar comes with its correct brown tolex hardshell case with yellow lining which is in good condition and only used during 1959-1960.

    As with most of these early 60's Strats, this guitar plays and sounds fantastic. Pickups are wonderfully balanced and deliver a wide spectrum of tones. There is a certain magic to these guitars, like they'd reached a zenith in the manufacturing process, a finesse that is maybe lost in later examples as the process becomes further streamlined to speed up construction. 

    A bucket list guitar certainty, don't let this one slip away.
