2012 Fender John Mayer Strat NECK Vintage American Stratocaster Rosewood 62 USA
1963 Fender Stratocaster, serial number L08027Selling my father's vintage Strat for him.We just had this incredible guitar checked out by the owner of Austin Vintage Guitars here in Austin Texas. He was blown away by the condition and sound of this beautiful Stratocaster. My dad purchased this guitar new in 1963 and has had it ever since. All original, no modifications whatsoever and very little playing time.Here are the details:Beautiful vintage finish with checking / hairline cracking consistent with ageOriginal strings and tremelo!Ashtray cover and key for case are missing (not included)Pickguard has cracks around screws (see pics); this is caused by shrinkage consistent with age of guitarExcellent case conditionThree-way switch on guitar did not move originally due to some corrosion but Austin Vintage lubed it up and it moves freely now. Two of three positions functioned fine, third needs a bit more lube / tlc.I can't begin to tell you how warm and robust the sound of this guitar is. I now understand why these are so coveted!
We have decided not to remove the neck, pickguard and pickups for photos on this listing. We want to keep it in its original state as it was shipped in 1963. Absolutely guaranteed to be all original from top to bottom!
Thanks for looking, please let me know if you have any questions. All serious offers considered.
