Yet another mint guitar from a collection that keeps on givin'!

We've been fortunate to have guitars from this collection available to us.  As is the case here, nearly all of the guitars were purchased new, played a little (sometimes not at all), then stashed.

We take each in and run them through our process.  We verify originality and playability and picture everything for you so there are no mysteries.  We've been setting each up as we go as well to make sure frets, truss rods and necks all check out.  This one passed with flying colors!

The guitar is a beautiful example of the run of carved top Strats from the period.  It is all original with no repairs, changes or issues.  The certificate of authenticity is included.

The original case is included and is as clean as the guitar.
