During the 1960s, rock music truly came into its own when musicians re-wrote the book on electric guitar by conjuring fantastic sounds and styles never before imagined. Leading the sonic charge during that exciting decade was the Stratocaster, which became not only an even more versatile musical tool, but also a true cultural symbol. The Classic Series '60s Stratocaster Lacquer evokes that golden chapter in Fender history with an authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its sleek alder body. Other features include a "C"-shaped maple neck, 7.25"-radius pau ferro fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets and vintage-style ivory-dot inlays, three vintage-style single-coil pickups with five-way switching, multi-ply pickguard, aged control knobs and switch tip, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge and vintage-style tuners.
Cosmetic Condition: Very good overall condition. The guitar does show some weather checking in the right light, but there are no cracks that go through the finish. Otherwise, it has just a few minor surface scratches. Plus, it comes with fresh strings and low action, courtesy of Cream City Music's signature setup.
Neck: "C" shaped Maple neck with 21-fret, 7.25" radius Pau Ferro fingerboard, and pearloid dot inlays.
Body: Alder body finished in Fiesta Red. Chrome hardware, 3-ply Mint Green pickguard, Aged White Plastic control knobs, and 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Synchronized Tremolo bridge.
