Fender / Stratocaster / 1964 / 3-tone Sunburst / Guitar For Sale

Now available, a well played early 1964 Fender Stratocaster in its original 3-tone sunburst finish!

This particular example has all of the desirable pre-cbs features including clay dot inlays, a brazillian rosewood fingerboard, and the spaghetti logo.

The guitar has a few small changes including:

- A professional refret with vintage tall wire and a new nut.

- A 5-way switch has been installed, the original 3-way is in the case.

Other than mentioned the guitar retains all of its original parts. The frets have plenty of life, playing with a low easy action. The back of the neck also has most of the finish taken off having a full C profile, and there is a notch in the pickguard/body to adjust the truss rod.

There is solder touchup on the volume pot, and at the switch however the harness appears correct otherwise. The visible pot dates are the 38th week of '63, which is consistent with a neck date of February '64 and no body date. The original black bottom pickups are healthy and have their original windings as well dating to May.

Comes in an era correct Stamford import case in rough condition, includes original tremolo arm.
