This iconic instrument carries a rich heritage, with a neck date of January '64 and a serial number L26786 that solidifies its vintage authenticity. Built in the renowned Fullerton Plant during the pre-CBS era, this guitar holds a special place in the hearts of collectors and enthusiasts alike.

Preserving its original components, this Stratocaster features Stackpole pots dating back to January '64 and pickups from April '64. It even comes with the coveted Original Stamford Export Case, ensuring its historical integrity. The spaghetti decal remains in fantastic condition, a testament to the guitar's care and preservation. The instrument boasts original Kluson Deluxe machine heads, tremolo, and saddles, which contribute to its vintage charm and playability.

Aesthetically, this Stratocaster has undergone a captivating transformation. A black nitrocellulose refinish now covers its original Fiesta Red finish, adding a touch of allure to its appearance. The round-lam rosewood fretboard has been re-fretted with medium jumbo frets, enhancing its playability and versatility. While the bone nut and 5-Way Switch have been replaced, they have been carefully selected to ensure optimal performance.

It's worth noting that this guitar has had a replacement backplate (with the original one kept safely in the case), and the grounding solders have been redone, most likely during the refinishing process. The truss rod is functioning properly, and the neck remains straight, ensuring a stable and enjoyable playing experience.
