This gorgeous all original 1962 Fender Stratocaster in 3-tone Sunburst is one of the cleanest vintage guitars I have ever seen. It has very minor playwear and the finish is still glossy, with a slight patina and a minimal amount of light checking, only noticeable upon close inspection.
The neck stamp reads 2 Aug 62 B and the C-shape maple neck, with Brazilian rosewood fingerboard features the original frets in perfect unworn condition.
The neck feels fantastic and plays like butter!
The mint green pickguard and all other plastic parts are super clean and crack-free.
There are 3 black-bottom pickups, and the pots and 3-way switch are untouched with original factory soldering.
Most importantly this is one of the best sounding vintage Stratocasters that you will ever hear. What are the chances of finding a guitar this clean that sounds so amazing?
The original brown tolex case is in good condition for its age, with orange plush lining including the original hang tags, polish cloth, strap, cable, and keys.
