Details

With a neck dating back to December of 1962, and electronics from 1963, this Fender Stratocaster is a true holy grail electric guitar.  This guitar instantly transports you back to the early days of Rock n Roll with its iconic Olympic White finish, and while the body is a more recent production it still shows age-appropriate wear to match the 58 years of incomparable aging on its neck and fretboard. Nothing compares to the feel and playability of a true vintage slim-C Strat neck and fretboard, and this guitar is in nearly unmatched playing condition. Throughout its history, this guitar 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. This Fender 1963 Fender Stratocaster in Olympic White is in excellent player-grade condition, and we encourage you to contact us directly for an in-hand description.
