This is a vintage Fender Stratocaster electric guitar body. This 100% all original example circa late-’63 to early-’64 features an original pre-CBS applied 3-tone sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish, an original splice of masking tape in the neck pickup cavity, original strap buttons and the original input jack cup. The more subdued yellow coloration in the center of the body is verity typical of ’63-’64 finishes, and though it’s not pencil-dated, would also be potentially appropriate for any Strat restoration project between 1963-1965. Extremely well preserved with absolutely no modifications, no extra holes, no finish touch-ups and very minimal wear overall, this represents a rare opportunity to restore a refinished pre-CBS Strat or a heavily digressed or modified example.
With attractive patina and plenty of authentic vibe, this body looks fantastic. It previously had a heavily damaged original neck on it that was dated from “JUNE 64.” It weighs 4 lbs. 0 oz.
