Early 1963 Left Handed Fender Strat, Sunburst finish, 100% original, with OHSC(brown case!). Beautiful blend Sunburst, Dark Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, very nice crack-free Green Guard, perfect headstock spag logo decal.
Overall, the guitar is in EXC condition with a very nice front; back and neck have some wear. But when you play this guitar, you will understand why that is…………
As far as the tone on this guitar, this Strat has a spank, sparkle and resonance that separates this Strat from other lefty vintage Strats I’ve played. Has lots of fret life remaining-bends across the neck are no problem. A truly great sounding and playing pre-CBS Strat!
All dates consistent with early 1963:
• Neck Plate-994xx
• Neck Date-2FEB63B
• Body Date-4/63 in Trem Cavity
• Pot Codes-304-6306
Pickups are nicely balanced: 5.72K/Neck, 5.95K/Middle, 5.88/Bridge Neck is very comfortable with .81/1st fret and .97/12th fret.
Includes bridge cover, trem bar, and the more desirable early Brown case!
This is a really fine, fine example of a lefty vintage pre-CBS Strat!
