A beautiful “transition era” Stratocaster! This 1965 model features an “L” Series neck plate, Transition logo, beautiful three tone sunburst finish, and the perfect, “C” shaped neck with a dark Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. There is some light overspray on the back of the neck but overall this is a clean example of a ’65 Strat with early features. The original pickups and three-way switch sound full and robust, without being brittle in the bridge setting; this is one aggressive sounding Strat! The guitar also includes the original Fender hardshell case.  With many of the same “pre CBS” era features of guitars for twice the price, this is an exceptional playing and sounding Stratocaster that would make a great addition to anyone’s collection!
