She is absolutely beautiful!
Pure beauty but should get it refinished...............JUST KIDDING............, don't ever touch it.
Love this Strat. Coincidentally I bought a body from a broken Strat just like this with some neat scuff marks. Then I sourced a neck and all the electrics and hardware.
Okay it’s not all original but it looks great and plays beautiful.
Post some pics if anyone is interested.
Super nice guitar. Looks the way a guitar should look - played!
Built one just like it with bits sourced from all over, some new some used.
Started with a road worn body and added a used neck then.........
I love it. Pics will follow if someone wants to see it.
She's had a busy life.
The fretboard looks wavey...seems to show more wear than the frets. Maybe it's been re-fretted once, or twice.
Man that looks great. Lucky boy.
Nice! I bet it plays like buttah!
That's a sweet piece of Fender history you got there. I would talk to a pro about removing the grime on the neck without hurting the patina and advice on removing the bandage its best to just yank it off (just kidding) I'll bet its hiding a bad paint chip or crack repair job done by a previous owner.
Great looking guitar. And it's right here in Bham to boot!
What's under the tape ?! What's in the box ?! ( said B. Pitt to K.Spacey. DON'T LOOK UNDER THAT TAPE ! said M. Freeman.) - As long as you're 98% sure all is well, recent horrific events haven't occurred at the local bar, etc., then it's safe for me to say, with a measure of bright optimism, that it's fine to take a peek under said tape. Never hurts to expose a 1/2 mm. at first, - just prudent, yunno; then proceeding 1/4 mm at a time. The whole process need not take over an hour, with maximum prudence applied. Or, leave the dang tape, why open a sealed door when the others work fine ?
Lemme know !
Fortune favors the brave, and rewards those who pursue it righteously, Congrats on the pearl of a Stratocaster.
If you decide to remove the tape, a hair dryer will do the trick You can always stick it back....
Very nice. Just looking at the photos, possibly the bridge p/u is out of adjustment, creating the darker tone? JMO Enjoy sg
Wow very nice.
Love the neck and fretboard.
The relic treatment looks pretty realistic on this one.
Seriously, though, nice guitar! If you've tried one, how close does the 60s Custom Shop 60 Stratocaster come to a real one?
Please very carefully remove the tape so we can all share the big reveal!!
It's pretty ugly so unless the start of the removal process indicates a good reason to leave it alone let's go!!!
Man, you can just look at those pics and watch time go by....
Mods, can I re-like the OP and the one below? @DickBanks convinced me to go back and look at those pictures and … and …
You mean like the one I have in the classifieds that is being sacrificed because of this one?
Conflict of interest aside, the Custom Shop stuff stacks up reasonably well. I really do prefer the two older ones I've had (this one and a refinished '64 that I sold a couple of years ago), but the law of diminishing returns does apply, IMO.
