Holy grail status '62 Stratocaster!

Used - Very Good

It sincerely does not get much better than this! Our collective jaw hit the floor when we popped open the case and it took us a while to put ourselves back together. The Fender strat has been an icon in rock and roll history for decades and while many great strats are out there, you can't beat an original vintage strat! We rarely get the pleasure of handling these so make sure you don't sleep too long on this beauty!

Luthier Notes: complete refret, shim nut, setup, evaluated for originality & accurate dating
