Nice but not too nice 1965 Stratocaster to take out and gig. The back is already pretty beat up but from the front it looks quite clean. I don't know why you Fender guys insist on taking the finish off the back of the neck but it's got that going on. This is a fairly late 65 but early enough to have gotten the small headstock. Neck is October, pickups are November. Pot codes are 10th week of 65. White guard, pearl dots, big frets...the usual 65 attributes. Trem arm is original. The ashtray bridge cover is a repro. The case has a logo which I thought came in in 66 but music stores tended to switch cases all the time so it may well have been with the guitar since new. With pre CBS Strats going crazy, it's nice to know that even though CBS was driving the bus when this guitar was built, they hadn't yet driven it into a ravine. It sounds great and plays beautifully.
