    Saw this used on GC. Decent price $1200 shipped. Case/all candy. A few minor bumps one small into the wood at the forearm area and around the neck plate. Needs a good clean and oiling of the board (very dry looking) but crazy light no scale yet but id say low 7lbs maybe upper 6lbs. Obligatory trunk shots, headstock photo blurry sorry!

    Yeah i sold my G&L vintage white/mint green last week (and a handful of other guitars) because of a narrow nut/thin 1st fret causing me to cramp (minor left hand injury last month, can only play fat necks now)

    G&L pics for reference

    Beautiful.

    That is exactly the look when I think of an alpha '60s Strat.

    Plus Olympic White Strats always sound the best. It's a scientifically proven fact! ;)

    May it bring you joy for a lifetime.

    I love the Fender American Original 60s “Thick C” neck profile. It’s a perfect fit for my fretting hand. Both nicely fat and super comfortable.

    I put one on my 2012 Fender Custom Shop ‘69 Relic Strat body and it’s definitely now my new #1...

    Updated pics after a clean and setup. Only bad is someone cranked the neck plate down hard to indent the nitro and crack it a bit....
