    I have a '59 Sonic Blue Strat that I inherited from the original owner. It was purchased in 1960. There was a problem with the neck and in 1964 it was sent back to the Fender factory for repair. Fender replaced the neck with a 1964 rosewood neck and did not return the original neck. I would love some input on how y'all think this would affect value. I have no intention of parting with it, but still nice to know your thoughts.

    The guitar plays great, and is my main axe.

    Thank you all!
    Jason

    P. S. I will post photos at a later date.

    Take some pictures of neck heel and neck pocket. Would be good to see if Fender left any marks when the guitar was sent to them in - 64

    That's quite true. Also, he didn't specifically say the photos would be of the strat in question :cool:
