How about a super clean, late 1963 Fender Strat anyone, with no issues, un-faded…?
This is all original in classic sunburst that has hardly faded at all. It comes with its original and rare blonde hardshell case
This guitar is truly stunning. The three tone sunburst alone is so vibrant, having miraculously escaped the ravages of time and any real fade. The lacquer shows no signs of checking, retaining a deep gloss which is a wonder to behold. There are a few dings here and there but nothing that really detracts from the overall look. Next to the finish, the maple used for the neck is sensational and the lacquer has hardly faded at all. Almost white looking, it is so cle
So often, the nitrate pickguards do not weather well but here we have only a little shrinkage without any warping and onl;y some light fade. The other plastic parts are also in tremendous shape as you can clearly see from the pics
Electronically, there is some evidence that there has been some repair to the solder on the back of the volume pot though nothing seems to have been changed, the pot codes read 47th week of 1963. Body date can be seen to read November of 1963 along with a September neck date.
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 3.34Kg
We cannot quite get over this guitar. The finish, the neck, just everything about it just has to be seen to be believed! You don’t see these everyday!
