1964 Fender Stratocaster – Lake Placid Blue
We present an original and rare 1964 Fender Stratocaster in its original Lake Placid Blue finish. Made in Fullerton, California.
This Fender Stratocaster pre-CBS Custom Color; Lake placid Blue Stratocaster is all original except for a professional refret and a new handcrafted bone nut. It’s a prime example of why these early Fender Stratocaster’s are so coveted. The maple neck is a medium C-shape profile with beautiful dark rosewood fingerboard with clay dots. It’s set up as a super fast and easy player. The headstock is clean as it can be and the “transition logo” is also perfect and intact. The original Double-Line Kluson tuners works perfectly.
The condition is very good with a lot of nicks, dings, belt buckle wear on the back and finish checking that gives this guitar a lot of mojo. The Mint Green pickguard is in perfect shape with no cracks or repairs. The original Grey bottom pickups are very warm and clear with a lively tone, woody, glassy at the same time with a perfect balance between the set. An incredible pre-CBS Custom Color that a been well loved but at the same time well kept since 1964.
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 hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order. Including periode correct polish cloth and original Fender strap.
