Custom Colour Fender Stratocasters have long been considered some of the most sought after vintage guitars on the market, and this pre-CBS 1963 Fender Stratocaster finished in Olympic White is without doubt one of the best we've had in the store.
Like many other examples pre 1964, this original Olympic White finish was applied without a clear coat to the top, meaning a distinct lack of yellowing to the finish over time. The Olympic White acrylic lacquer was original sprayed over a Desert Sand undercoat, and the lack of clear coat leaves the guitar looking white and vibrant to this day.
This guitar is internally completely original. The neck dates to Feb '63, while the pot codes are 304 6306. The pickups, pickguard and tuners are all original and in excellent condition, with the pickguard showing very little wear and tear compared to other mint guards on guitars of a similar period. The guitar also includes its original tremolo arm, hire purchase booklet and Jennings case, marking the guitar as imported by the Jennings distributor at the time.
A fantastic collectors grade custom colour Fender Stratocaster from 1963, in excellent condition.
