Where do we even start with this guitar? It needs no introduction. This is a rare chance to win a vintage ’60s Fender Strat that is not only a magic and incredibly inspiring guitar to play, but a great investment piece as we see values soaring deep into 5-figures.

The transition of the Fender brand over to CBS in 1965 was a big part of Fender’s history. Even though the pre-CBS instruments are held in high regard, post-1965 instruments still hold a lot of that Leo Fender magic and were favored amongst many guitarists – Jim Hendrix for one.

The finish still has that nitro gloss that accentuates the shades of the sunburst, worn in all the expected places. Interestingly, this body is painted using the older, some would say more elegant, traditional method by spraying the yellow part of the sunburst rather than dipping the body in yellow stain to create the ‘target burst’. The neck has retained most of its high gloss finish, which is a delight to see and feel. The plastics as you’d expect have faded a little but there is not too much wear – all of which add to the vibe of this Strat. The period-correct grey bottom pickups are present and the pickup selector has been upgraded to a 5-way selector – a common mod on ’60s Strats to allow for the ‘in-between’ tones. Also included is the original black tolex Fender hard case which is in fine condition for it’s age!
