Here is a excellent example of a CLEAN pre-CBS Strat! This one, from 1963, is in excellent condition. There is no finish checking whatsoever and the neck still has it's gloss! At the same time, it still feels worn in and classic. The fretboard has beautiful patterns in it's rosewood and it features "clay dot" inlays. This definitely is one of the finest vintage Stratocasters we've seen here at Chicago Music Exchange.

The back has some buckle rash. The neck also has a few minor blemishes, but has retained its glossy finish nicely. The headstock is in immaculate condition. This Strat looks fantastic for its age!
