About This Listing

A super playable and very original Stratocaster from the first year of production! Neck Date 1-55, body date 12-54, light overspray on neck and body, neck has been professionally refretted and a new nut by Gruhn Guitars, knobs and trem coverplate are reproductions, and there are two extra screw holes drilled in the body for a different trem cavity coverplate that is long gone, some, or all, of the trem coverplate screws are new, there are two small holes drilled through the original pickguard and into the body that would have flattened the very slightly lifting/warping pickguard, there is new tubing for the pickup height screws, the tremolo arm is new, all other hardware and electrics are original, bridge pickup 5.6 ohms, middle pickup 5.65 ohms, neck pickup 5.68 ohms, there is natural deterioration of the pickup covers (new ones in the case). Guitar was purchased from Gruhn Guitars in 2016 and comes with verification and appraisal by George Gruhn outlining the same changes that are noted here, the tweed “center pocket” case is beautifully worn and aged and has some discolouration of the red interior, the neck is a wonderful feeling smooth rounded V shape that fits the hand like an old glove, all three pickup positions are musical and chimey and overdrive a tweed-era amp perfectly, guitar weighs in at 7lbs 10oz. With the pro refret it is a very lovely and easy guitar to play, and with all the charm and history, this guitar will make you very happy
