1962 Fender Stratocaster fiesta red
1962 Fender Stratocaster, fiesta red. Made in USA, serial number 87274. This guitar is mostly original, including the original white tolex hardshell case (the white plastic back plate is in the case). A different pickguard assembly was once mounted and the result is an extra screw hole underneath the tortoise celluloid pickguard. As a result of this change, there are a few non original solder joints. It's highly likely that while the pickguard is an original specimen, it's a bit earlier than 1962. We also believe two of the pots to be non original to this guitar, as they are dated 1960 and 1961 respectively. The frets appear to be original to this guitar. The very rare fiesta red custom color finish is original and shows a lot of wear. On consignment and sold as-is. Weighs 3.5kg.
