We present an all original 1961 Fender Stratocaster in Sunburst finish. Made in Fullerton, California.
It has a great playing neck with good frets. Beautiful rosewood slab fingerboard with clay dots. Even more amazing is, that it comes complete with its original Brown hardshell case with all working latches, original hang tag/instruction manual, original strap, original tremolo arm and the original bridge cover. It’s in great shape with minor nicks plus dings, very minor finish checking, and other cosmetic wear included one small pickguard crack.
This lightweight pre-CBS Stratocaster, has a beefy tone that takes you back where it all started. It sounds so amazing with a lot of twang and woody sound. The guitar itself remains structurally sound with no cracks, breaks or repairs.
Pickups and electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original Fender brown hardshell case (one screw in the handle is replaced) .
