Stunning 1964 Fender Stratocaster, in very good original condition.

Today, the mere mention of an L-series Stratocaster is enough to arouse the desires of all fans of this model, both for their nostalgic aspect since they are the very first Fender guitars to be directly imported into France in the early ’60s, and for their prominence in a period that would see the Fullerton-based manufacturer be taken over by broadcast-giant CBS in January of 1965, marking the end of small-scale manufacturing and the gradual start of a large-scale industry.

On the present guitar, we find all the elements of the Strats produced between 1962 and 1964: the spaghetti logo in its final version before it was replaced by a larger transition logo at the end of 1964, the clay dot fingerboard inlays, the cellulose pickguard that took on a greenish hue as was frequently the case before Fender replaced them with an ABS pickguard, Kluson Deluxe tuners, a beautiful 3-tone Sunburst finish, well aged on the top of the instrument but with still plenty of red under the pickguard and on the back… The three gray bottom single coil pickups, the cloth-covered wiring as well as the potentiometers dated to the correct year and the tone capacitor are completely original, the neck is dated to September 1964. Here is a well-preserved example of this mythical guitar, which has undergone a thorough professional setup in our workshop in order to get the best of its sound quality and optimize its playing comfort.

Sold in its original Fender white tolex hardshell case.
