1964 Fender Stratocaster Refin

Serial # L52814, neck dated December 1964. With its cool shell pink relic finish, awesome feeling neck and classic staggered-pole Strat tone, this '64 is a perfect player's guitar.

This consigned guitar was refinished a couple of times, it seems, and we've been told that it was most recently candy-apple red. It's had a Floyd Rose trem cavity filled, and the headstock's knob replaced. Good reasons to refinish a guitar. Black bobbin pickups appear to be original issue, as does the bridge. The pots are from the 1980's, the pickguard and tuners are recent. 60's strap buttons, and the knobs and pickup covers are likely 1960's. The headstock is stained by the logo that was once there, and the neck date and neck plate provide indication of the year of manufacture.

All that said, it's a great sounding guitar, and feels pretty heavenly. It weighs in at 7.2 lbs; pickup DC values are 6.2, 6.4 and 9.0 kOhms (neck to bridge) suggesting the bridge pickup has been rewound hotter than spec. Provided with the guitar are photos of it with its older red refinish, as well as with its finish removed.

Well set-up in shop, excellent playability.

With original export hardshell case.
