Another 1962 Burgundy Mist Strat in so many months? surely not..,.oh hold on, read on..
The body has been expertly refinished by Neil Ivison of Ivison Guitars to match a factory Burgundy Mist from 1962 we sold just a few months ago. Neil painstakingly removed all the old layers of paint to reveal the wood and then stained it to match the original factory yellow. The body was then finished in nitrocellulose over a white undercoat and he carried out some minor relicing as well as some tinting to give the finish an aged look.
The neck has also been refinished in amber nitro, reliced like the body and the decal replaced, frets are in good condition as is the rosewood board. The tuners are slightly later Double Line Kluson.
The hardware is in good condition. There is signs of wear on the correct saddles but this is not extensive. The correct plastics are a little faded as you’d expect but have been well cared for and really do look the part with a good match for the rest of the guitar.
Electronically there have been some solder joints disturbed but only the ones you would have to disturb to complete the refin and all the components are correct, pickups sound great with original windings and everything is working extremely well.
This guitar sounds fantastic. All three pickups deliver a delicious array of tones with a depth that that so characteristic of these black bottom pickups. The vibrato is very responsive and has a reassuring feel.
If you’re looking for a killer 60’s strat that looks like a $75,000 original vintage one but won’t break the bank then look no further. It won’t be here long…
