VINTAGE - This 1961 Fender Stratocaster is one of the cleanest vintage Strats we've ever stocked. This one owner guitar was purchased in the early 60's, however the owner only played this guitar occasionally and mostly kept it in a closet. This Stratocaster comes form the golden era of Fender, featuring a dark rosewood slab fingerboard, and a three-ply white/ black/ white pickguard, which are a trademark of early 60's Stratocasters
The heel of the guitar neck is marked ‘2-61’ dating the guitar at February 1961. This alder wood solid body guitar weighs in at 7.12 lbs, and has its original factory three-tone sunburst finish, with all its original factory parts including the Pickguard, tuners, and frets. The nut needed to be replaced, so a new one was cut to perfection. The guitar will come with its original nut, and original hang tags included inside the original Fender hardshell early 60’s brown style case.
