★☆★☆ FENDER AMERICAN STANDARD STRATOCASTER LEFT HANDED BLACK MAPLE
1964 Fender Stratocaster
Refinished in Fiesta Red L serial number and has had some parts replaced or restored over the years. With Original Hard Shell Case.
The body has no additional routes with some shielding in the pickup cavities which was removed. The worm route is present.
The neck is not original to the guitar and has a beautiful dark Brazilian rosewood fret board with clay dot markers and it has been refinished. Stamped on butt of neck is 4 JUN 64B. I believe it is a Jazzmaster neck that had the headstock shaped to Stratocaster shape. Original dual line Kluson tuners are the only tuners that have been on the neck. The nut is a bone replacement. Frets are original. The string tree is original with a nylon spacer. Neck was over sprayed and the decal (Fender transition logo) is a replacement. This is one great playing vintage Brazilian rosewood neck.
The three pickups are all yellow stamped with a JUN 64 date and have the original leads and windings. Both tone pots are coded 137-6428 dating them to June 1964. The volume pot is a replacement and dates to 1963. Original Cap and three way CRL 1452 switch. Several of the solder joints look original and probably are, but some are re-solders.
The original bridge has shallow string sets in the steel block as it should and the saddles are stamped Fender Pat Pending.
The tremolo cover, pickup covers and knobs, with the exception of the bridge pickup cover are original. When I got the guitar it had a replacement pickguard. I purchased and installed an original 1964 green celluloid pickguard in fantastic shape. It has shrunk slightly but works just fine. I added a Callaham shield.
The case is an original 1964 no-logo case in usable condition. The ends have some small cracks in the wood. The latches are all there and operate, but the spring action on the outer latches no longer springs them back.
If this was a completely original 64’ it would go for $15K to $20K.
