Played When Parked

1962 slab necked Fender Stratocaster - OK, so it not a vehicle. Still pretty cool though. Fricken hang tags are still there... Assuming it's real it's cool.

*Not a reissue.
Purchased from the original owner, this 1962 Fender Stratocaster is about as good as it gets.

"Slab" Brazilian rosewood fretboard with original frets with almost no wear. Original finish in excellent condition with vibrant red in the 3-color sunburst. Original mint green guard in perfect condition, all electronics and hardware unmolested.

Includes original brown hard shell case in excellent shape.

Original hang tags, bridge cover, tremolo arm, strap and other case candy is all there.
All pots dates 43rd week of 1961. SN falls in late '61 range. Neck dates 1-62, making this one of the first Fenders to leave the factory in 1962.

The first owner of this guitar played it as a teenager for one year in 1962. As a result, there is one small 1/4 in chip where the neck meets the body on bass side, and part of the spaghetti style logo was scratched off.

A remarkable find in this condition.
Offered at $21k.
