Guess what value caps I'll be using!
Beautiful color. Congrats. I have always wanted a green guitar.
Lovely guitar and great colour.
I wonder what the yellow stain was?
No idea, couldn't identify it.
Interesting... The neck carve starts out at .790 like an early '60's C at the nut but then widens to .970 at the 12th fret rather than the .930 of the early '60's C. This would indeed feel unique, especially way up the neck.
Probably best I never pick one up...right now I'm happy with what I got.
There is something (actually lots of somethings) I love about the CS vintage guitars.
You are blessed (and @Nate D , others who are fortunate to have these fine pieces)- truly heirloom quality!
The most important thing is playing the dang thing!!!
Absolutely! But ti does help if it makes ya feel good, too...
Lol. Fair, but if the guitar doesn’t make me feel good it goes bye bye.
is that sherwood green? I had a '61 NOS non-metallic
Well, first of all, I love Strats. They are and have been great guitars since they first appeared. But the color, Sherwood Green is one of my very top colors. I built a Jazzmaster in that color and added a gold anodized pickguard that makes the color just jump out at me. Great buy too. Thanks for sharing it with us.
I feel so fortunate to have one of these. I owned a few Strats prior, never bonded and ended up flipping them. This one has rocked my world, to the point where it gets probably 90% of my playing time while the others sit in their cases.
First off, congrats on the CS59. A guitar like that would pretty much empty my GAS tank for a long time.
That's an interesting choice of caps they've used. Have you twisted the knobs much in your playing of this one? I would think the .1uf cap on the top control would be very dark and the bottom would be less dark but a lot darker than the modern .022uf value Fender uses today.
I've had a couple of Strats with the vintage .1uf value on the tone controls. I usually like a much brighter cap but with those ones I usually only move the controls back a couple of notches to fatten things up. It sure is cool seeing those vintage style Fender branded caps but I guess that's the attention to detail you get with a CS guitar.
Honestly, I always keep my tone wide open and just change pickups for tone change, but I'll examine it.
Looks like all my CS guitars have these same cap values. They were all made within 2014 to 2015.
Faded metallic Sherwood
Very Very Nice, beautiful piece.
Congratulations on such a beautiful guitar. Amazing find.
