1960 Fender Stratocaster


⭕ My uncle owned this 1960 Stratocaster. It is in beautiful, vintage condition-well played and well cared for, with original finish. The neck is a very comfortable C shape with a nicely broken-in Brazilian rosewood fretboard and original frets--the crowns are worn flat (bends forever) and are nice and level; the guitar feels very sensual to play, as only a well played instrument can. I was always very protective of the back of the neck--no significant dents or dings--most of the finish is still there. The guitar is marked 11/60 in the trim cavity and 12/60 on the end of the neck. The electronics are original--the 3-way switch knows the in-between positions; the pots operate smoothly (theyre marked 304-6045); the original pickups sound great, with the vast array of vintage Strat tone.
The plastic is in beautiful, vintage condition; pickguard is green, slightly shrunken (the neck pickup tilt makes the E string sound a high E when fretted on it!); the back cover has a hairline screw-hole crack on one corner (top-treble side). Everything on the guitar is original, except the tuning machines were replaced with reissues, in the 80s, but the original ferrules and screws are installed and the original Kluson Deluxe tuners are in the case, with the original chrome bridge cover. The guitar weighs 7lbs.9oz. It comes with the brown Fender tolex case it came with, when I bought it (the case was retired in the 80s--its worn but attractive). This is not a Stratocaster case (its a Jaguar or Jazzmaster case), but because of the mutual wear they had when I acquired them, I suspect this is this guitars original case.
