Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California!

Here we have an all-original, Pre CBS Stratocaster!

This is such a great piece. It is clean enough for the collector, and ready to play as well.

Weight is just 7lbs 8 ounces.  The rest of the specs will come soon..

All dates fall from May 1965 or earlier and the neck date is from March of 1965.  The case is a no-logo transitional case. The original tremolo arm and bridge cover are included too!

The original 3-way switch is still in place and all solders are untouched.

Frets are in sweet shape.  The neck feels so good, with finish still remaining on the back.  There are no worn pits in the fretboard either.  

A killer piece from the close of Fender's Golden Era.
