Fender / Stratocaster / 1963 / Dakota Red / Guitar

1963 Fender Stratocaster, dakota red. Made in USA, serial number 97558. This guitar has been refinished about 30 years ago. It looks like it originally was shoreline gold, ouch. With a neck date of March '63, the pickguard can't be original to the guitar, as the extra hole underneath it shows, but it is a real 1963-1964 celluloid 'green guard'. The guitar once had different tuners installed and was subsequently restored with a wooden insert underneath the tuners and around the tuner bushings. Vintage correct replica tuners are now mounted. A second string tree was removed and the hole filled and oversprayed. The pickups and pots (15th week of '63) are all correct, as is the bridge assembly. Vintage 5-way switch. Also, there might a pickguard screw or two not original to the guitar, but it's a wonderfully sounding player's pre-CBS Strat. Comes with the original white tolex Fender hardshell case. Weighs 3.4kg.
