1962 Fender Stratocaster Black

This is a nice pre CBS Fender guitar that has seen a few changes. The body has been refinished black and i believe i can detect some very fine overspray on the neck which has largely worn away. The original decal has crazed slightly suggesting some overspray although it is still raised to the touch

The original green nitrate guard has a small extra hole near the switch screw which remains unfilled and goes unnoticed.  All 3 pots remain and date to the 34th week of 1961. The 3 way switch is 1970’s. The shielding plate is there.

The 3 knobs and switch tip are old replacements

Neck and middle pickup are original windings but the bridge looks to have been rewound in the 1970’s judging by the colour of the wire.

It has been re fretted with medium wire and the nut has been changed. The slab board is in very good condition.

pickups read Neck   5.8    middle      6.1     bridge 5.1 K ohms

weight is 7.6 llbs

The tremolo arm is a replacement

Comes with its original Selmer  case
