Fender Stratocaster 1963
– Olympic white incl. OHSC. Alder body refinished in the early seventies. Genuine color Fiesta Red as can be seen in the pickupcavities. This guitar has been used by pro-musicians and bears minor playwear. In the early eighties it got a pro-refret. Hardware is all original, except for the pots which were replaced resp. in 1989 (volume) 1969 (tone neck) 1972 (tone mid). Also the three way toggle was replaced by a five-way toggle in 1969. There are signs of a second string tree and an eighties mounted Roland midi pickup. Few screws have been replaced, one bridge, two pickup height, saddle height bolts. But 98% of this guitar remained original and it sounds amazing! It has all the desirable pre-CBS features such as green guard, spaghetti-logo, clay dot-inlays, black-bottom PUs, etc. The weight is "nothing" with only 3,37 kgms and together with the comfortable neck-profile with a super "broken-in" feeling, this Strat is a real joy to play! Comes in its orig. black Fender tolex case with orange plush-lining, which bears the name of the last owner Ger Hoeijmakers, guitarplayer with the Frank Boeijen Groep and the tourdates for 1989.
