1986 Fender Stratocaster, amazingly accurate 1962 reissue, original black finish in excellent condition. Weighing in at 9 lbs., in great original condition with all original parts, including trem bar, tailpiece cover and tweed case. Body and paint in amazing condition with very few small dents and next to no scratching. Original 5-way switch currently installed; original 3-way in case. First year Corona factory, most likely still Fullerton parts. Original red-lined tweed case has some slight staining on the front side, some tarnish on the hardware, otherwise also in excellent condition, all latches and hinges work, ends have some scuffs but all stitching and piping are intact.

Recent setup including complete level and crown has made this a great player. As close to the early 60s as you're gonna get at this price!
