Fender / Stratocaster / 1962 / Fiesta Red / Guitar For Sale
1962 Fender Stratocaster, fiesta red. Made in USA, serial number 87274. This guitar is mostly original, including the original fiesta red finish. A different pickguard assembly was once mounted and the result is an extra post-62 position screw hole underneath the tortoise celluloid pickguard. It's very likely that the pickguard is a bit earlier than 1962, but it is an original ca. 1960-1962 celluloid guard. We also believe two of the pots to be non original to this guitar, as they are dated 1960 and 1961 respectively. As a result of this change, there are a few non original solder joints. The frets appear to be original to this guitar. A portion of the input cavity was routed as the input jack lip touched the wood. As a result of these changes, you can own a custom color pre-CBS Strat for the price of a sunburst! Comes with an original white tolex Fender hardshell case which is believed to be original to the guitar as well (if this guitar was sold at a shop sometime in 1963 and the shop just had new cases in and none of the old ones left, the guitar would be sold with whatever they had at hand). On consignment and sold as-is. Weighs 3.5kg.
