Out of stock

We present an all original and late 1964 Fender Stratocaster pre-CBS in a beautiful 3-Tone Sunburst Finish with Transition logo.

This pre-CBS  has been played since 1964 and you can see it and definitely hear it. A lots of resonance in the body and neck. The weight is very good with great balance and the grey bobbins pickups is balanced with a great tone of soul. Over the years it’s gotten a sizable amount of playing spots on the back and sides where paint has been chipped. Very nice chips + dings in the finish, that has given the guitar a great vibe and good looks.

The neck has become good warm/played and tinted, with a beautiful curved veneer rosewood fretboard with side clay dots and pearloid dots on the front. (Totally common to see that in the end of 1964). The owner has written his name with a pen inside the tremolo cavity and in the pickup cavity. Overall the body and neck have no cracks and repair.  Frets show minor denting so there are still a lot of life in them.

A good old pre-CBS with a lot of wear that deserved to be played.

Pickups and the electronics/wiring remains untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.

It comes complete with its original/periode hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
