An original Fender Stratocaster from 1962 in sunburst finish – coveted and collectible from the Pre-CBS period.
The Fender Stratocaster from before 1965 is probably the most legendary electric guitar in the world. Leo Fender started producing these guitars for the broad public in 1954.
The production until 1965 (Pre-CBS phase) took place under very high quality controls, small quantities and with the best materials. Therefore these guitars are very popular among players and collectors.
This guitar was built in 1962 and painted with a 3-tone sunburst finish. It was bought by the original owner in London on Denmark Street at the time. It was his beloved guitar and he played it a lot. As a result the original finish has the real and cool vintage look.
Years ago he also decided to take the neck from his original 1959 Fender Stratocaster and put it on this guitar, to improve the playability. This original neck of 1959 has a slab board fretboard with the original frets and the original finish.
The guitar plays fantastically and sounds incredibly good – surely a dream guitar for every player and collector. This Stratocaster shows you clearly why these guitars are so popular. It has the typical bell-like sound and this round clear tone.
The guitar comes with the original case.
