The Fender Stratocaster is iconic in both sound and design. This rare 'hardtail' features a beautiful two tone sunburst finish with an early 'slab board' rosewood neck. A great addition to anyone's collection.
Body: Original sunburst finish with natural wear throughout. Body date is 2-60. Back of body shows finish damage from strap/cord left in case.
Neck: Highly ornate bird's eye maple flame with Brazilian rosewood fretboard, clay dot inlays. Fender water decal logo intact. Overspray on back of neck. Truss rod moves freely.
Pickups/Hardware: Pickups are strong at 6.06 (bridge) and 6.09 (middle) 6.07 (neck). Single line Kluson tuners hold strong. Bridge saddles are in great condition and move freely for easy intonation. Pots date 46th week 1959.
