1964 Fender Stratocaster, refinished in Fiesta Red, in very good condition.

This Strat comes to us from the period when the neck mounting plates bear the famous “L” serial numbers, probably resulting from a printing error when going from number 99,999 to 100,000, but which gave us Fender instruments that are among the most appreciated and sought after today – after all, they condense 10 years of experience in the production of the model at that time! The guitar has a set of characteristics specific to the so-called transition period: the neck, dated to October 1964 (“pre-CBS” by officially three months), is topped with a thin rosewood fingerboard typical of the period, which still retains the clay dot inlays which will be changed to perloid over the coming months. The guitar’s three original single-coil pickups are gray bottoms, as are tyypically found on Fender instruments of the period. The headstock features the new transitional logo in bold, gold lettering, taking over from the spaghetti logo. The guitar, produced at the end of 1964, also features an ABS pickguard, a material recently introduced to replace the celluloid material used previously, but which posed issues due to its flammability and its tendency to shrink and break. This Strat has been fully appraised, set up and preapred in our workshop, sold in perfect playing condition.

Sold in a later Fender hardshell case, with a trem arm.
