Hi Guys, More than a year ago I made a post about a 64' Strat that I got. The wood was bright and dry, many things were not as they should be and I really did not know what a great Strat I got there. I want to share what I've learned (I really got me into the pre cbs Stuff) and what improved the whole guitar. First of all I want to recommend Duesenberg Fingerboard Lotion: I tried out many things (including lemon iol) but this was the only oil which really worked and put the wood into a colour/feeling as it should be! One thing which is really crazy about the rare ealry 64' Strats with Spagetti Logo, Clay Dots, Green Guard etc. is that the pickups are outstanding! I recently played a 55 and a 59 Strat and they both sound week compared to mine - this I think is because they learned how to put more wire onto the pickups in the mid 60s. What is important: You really have to keep the pickups 'far' away from the strings, otherwise you get a really strange tone and the intonation (-sound) is crap. Lets come to the bridge: The pre-owner made a reissue vintage Bridge on it and it really felt strange and wrong, so I changed it to the original and the difference is HUGE! I really recommend playing with the pre cbs bridges on you strats, it is woth the money! Also I put the original tuners onto it but they really are worse than modern Kluson Tuners, so I bought Kluson Single Line Replica Tuners which look vintage: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Kluson-Sing...717348?hash=item213320efe4:g:LWcAAOSwFe5Xyarq They are really good and it all looks and feels original! Last but not least: I tried original Tuner, Pots and electronics and I can tell you that in my opinion it is really NOT worth the money. When I got it, the original electronic parts (except for the pickups) where already replaced (but not very good). So I changed it to the original and I must say that it only sounded a little bit better. Not I got CTS Pots and Switch and a nicely done cabling and it sounds better than with original parts! If you have any question feel free to ask, I hope my review is interesting for you. Please dont hate my for my medium English .
