This is a vintage Strat with a unique provenance and history. Date codes span from Nov 1963 to early 1964, so it’s more accurate to call it a 1963/1964 Strat, especially with a neck date of NOV 63(taking a page from the George Gruhn book of dating a guitar based on the neck date).
This guitar was previously owned by the great Elliot Easton. In fact, a good customer of mine flew from Germany to Malibu to purchase this guitar from Elliot. It was partially refinished by Jay Black, one of the founders of the Fender Custom Shop, somewhere around 1991. Then legendary Tom Murphy, who does the aging/relicing for the high-end Gibson Historic Les Pauls, refinished and reliced the guitar somewhere around the mid-1990s. I’ve only seen perhaps a half dozen lefty Gibsons that Tom has worked on, including the four lefty Rossington Les Pauls(I owned two). And I’ve seen very few Fenders that Tom has worked on, let alone a vintage lefty Strat, so this is a truly unique vintage lefty which has been refinished and reliced by the best in the business.
