Classic 1963 Strat with all the pre-CBS features everyone loves and that sought after, 1963 neck profile at a nice price too...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

Here’s a stunning, original sunburst, late 1963 Fender Stratocaster that has that feel, look and sound that defines everything you expect a good Strat to be…

All original sunburst with no touch ups or overspray on either the neck, or the body. It has the original frets which are in very good condition with little wear. Shielding paint has been very neatly applied to the cavities (see pictures) and it looks like the volume pot is slightly newer although the date is obscured by solder.

All correct hardware, all original pickups with no rewinds sound totally superb, all of them. Just like a good ‘63 Strat should do. All pots that we can read the date are original and dated 24th week of 1963. Neck date is July 1963, body date is August 1963 and serial number places it late in 1963. It has that nice, medium chunky 1963 neck that is very popular and is why this year is often sought after by players.

Included is an early 1964 no logo, black tolex case that could conceivably be the case it was originally sold in which just like the rest of this very cool guitar, is in great shape.

We think it looks just fantastic with just the right amount of very minor wear and nice mild checking. It is in fact a joy to look at, looks mighty fine in our showroom and brings a smile on the face of everyone who picks it up.

A real nice Strat that ticks all the right boxes in every way. I am sure the new owner will have a big grin on his/her face when he or she leaves the store with this beauty in hand..
