FENDER STRATOCASTER, 1963
Sunburst. One more pre-CBS Stratocaster, 100% original. Small
headstock, spaghetti logo, gorgeous intact green-guard, clay-dots,
black-bottom pickups, original 3-way selector switch, pre L series serial
number (95xxx), neck date June 1963. Two pots are marked 304 6320 (May
'63) and the third one is identical but has no code stamped on the cover.
Original bridge with "Fender Pat. Pend." saddles, original
Kluson Deluxe single-line tuners, Switchcraft jack socket. Normal playing
wear, heavier under the right arm position where the sunburst has faded to
yellow and bare wood.. The back is very very clean. Normal edge wear on
the body. Rust on the bridge saddles, and the logo shows wear in
the 'Stratocaster' part, while the spaghetti-style Fender is clear
and clean. The neck has the legendary '63 profile, with normal playing
wear on the back, and the fretboard has been professionally refretted
(more than excellent job!) and
shows heavy wear in the bazilian rosewood board, which does not affect
perfect playability in any way. Great action and very easy to play,
perfect new frets will let you play with no effort at all! You know we only bring great
sounding guitars, and this one is no exception: loud, balanced and
aggressive in all three switch positions. Everything is still there:
tremolo arm, bridge cover, spring cover (a little rough but original).
Complete with an early black tolex original hardshell case.
