There are few guitars that are as iconic, and sought after, as a true 1962 Fender Stratocaster in Sonic Blue. While this example may not be all original, it still possesses the tone, look, feel, and spirit, of an early 60’s Strat. The original neck on this guitar has been refinished and refretted, giving it an incredible smooth and seamless playing experience; preparing it for decades to come. Along the course of its 58 years, it had its switch replaced with a 5 way switch, allowing its original single coil pickups to consistently access the Strat’s defining out-of-phase split-position tones. While its body is a more recent production, it is still dressed in a gorgeous Sonic Blue finish with wear that is true to its age. This Fender 1962 Fender Stratocaster is a true beauty in excellent player-grade condition, and we encourage you to contact us directly for an in-hand description.
