This guitar came to us from a private collection where it has been for many years. A phenomenal, Pre-CBS Stratocaster with an original, rare, “tortoiseshell” pickguard! This 1964 model has all the early desired features; “Spaghetti” Fender logo, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with “Clay Dot” inlays, “C” shape neck, and the perfect “three tone” sunburst finish. With a trio of original single coil pickups and three-way switch, this guitar is a classic example of all the versatile tones that have made this era Strat popular with so many legendary players. It includes an original “Blonde” tolex hardshell case. Straight examples of Pre-CBS Stratocasters are becoming harder to find, and an original Sunburst “tortoise guard” won’t come up for sale often! EXC w/OHSC $28,500.
