1965 Fender Stratocaster – Sunburst
We present an all original 1965 Fender Stratocaster in its original Sunburst finish. Made in Fullerton, California.
This Fender Stratocaster / L-series has been played since 1965 and you can see it and definitely hear it. A lot of resonance in the body and neck. The weight is on the good side but with a great balance. The grey bottom pickups is extremely balanced with a great tone of soul.
There is sizable playing spots on the back and sides where paint has been chipped. Overall nicks, dings and other cosmetic play wear that has given the guitar a great vibe and good looking. A beautiful flamed C-shape maple neck with dark rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dots. It has the most common tiny crack spot in the pickguard, otherwise no breaks or any repairs. Just a perfect Stratocaster from mid 60’s that sounds incredible.
Pickups and the electronics/wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Comes with its original Fender hardshell case with orange interior. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
