For Sale: Left Handed 1965 Fender Strat, Pre-CBS Features, Near Mint!
This is an early 1965 Fender Strat originating from January 1965, with the desirable Pre-CBS features of Green Guard and Clay Dots.
This is a one-owner guitar being sold by the daughter of the original owner. It was never played outside of the house, and the condition shows it: let’s call it a conservative 9/10 or Near Mint Condition.
Solder joints are perfect and untouched, masking tape around cloth wire is all intact, perfect paint stick mark, etc. Includes original export hard case (Canada).
Dates are: Neck Plate – L55477, Neck Stamp – 2JAN65B (2 = Strat Model, B = standard 1 5/8 width nut), Pickups: 2-1-65.
This is the 4th JAN 1965 Strat I’ve had – these are the last great vintage Strats IMO. And they are getting SO hard to find in this condition AND being One-Owner!
