    How about a super vibey, 1962 Fender Strat? A no-brainer…

    This guitar oozes style and just looks soooo good. The three tone sunburst has faded and been worn away in places giving it that distinctive look that you only get from an early 60s sunburst strat. All the hall-marks of a well used and well loved guitar are here. The ‘Hendrix Lives’ inscription might not to be everyone's taste but seems to suit the guitar.

    The neck (Jun 62) has worn wonderfully. The newer frets have plenty of life left in them and the fretboard is in good shape, showing some signs of wear. One tuner is a later Kluson double line.

    The nitrate pickguard is in good condition with the only modification being the hole near the controls for a switch, thankfully there has been no extra routing inside. The other plastic parts are in good shape. The hardware is in good condition with some corrosion which does not affect performance but simply adds to the vibe. 

    Electronically, everything is a s expected with the only change being the volume pot and a newer switch. The tone controls both date to week 16 of 1962.

    Sonically, this guitar delivers those wonderful 60’s black bottom Strat tones built on the bedrock of a spry acoustic sound. The neck profile is a nice medium one and it is a nice light weight of 3.54Kg

    This is a stunning instrument with a cool vibe that just sounds sensational. Arguably the perfect Stratocaster...
