A nicely priced, classic 1964 Strat with a superb body only refinish in lake placid blue metallic that looks totally killer...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

From our one of our favourite years for Fender, we give you this 1964 Fender Stratocaster in Lake Placid Blue

Whoever did the refin did a superb job. The metallic finish has a wonderful depth that seems to be enhanced further by the relicing and where the clear coat has worn through. This gives the body a multifaceted look that changes in the light.

The celluloid pickguard is in good shape, free of any cracks.

The neck has been refretted and the board is in excellent condition. The back has worn nicely with the original decal still present.

The hardware shows signs of corrosion as you’d expect but is all correct.

Electrically, there are a few mods here. We still have the correct dated, black bottom pickups though the neck and bridge ones have been rewound and the middle one has had a peel back repair carried out.. The control harness is a new one from Six String supplies made with high quality components. and as you can see in the pics, there is a swimming pool route under the guard.

The guitar comes with a hardshell case.

This guitar certainly delivers tonally. Those classic mid-60’s Strat sounds can be found here, all three pickups are well balanced and blend well in the in-between settings. It takes an instrument like this to remind us how versatile the Stratocaster and how iconic those tones are. It is a real nice weight and very resonant acoustically.

Killer looks and tone to match, this is already a favourite here at ATB. Grab it before it gets away.
