This Fender Stratocaster was made in the USA in 1959. It has been refinished and modified as follows. The body and neck are both refinished. The neck has a Fender "R&R" stamp indicating some work was done at the factory but probably that happened long before its present finish. Both the body and the neck have custom inlays, on the neck around the headstock, and the star, and on the body around the pickguard. The green finish is old and was done professionally. The neck and middle pickups are original but the bridge pickup is not. The pots date to 1966. The pickguard looks old, but is probably a repro, same with the knobs. There is no routing to the body but there are a couple of extra screw holes. The neck has been refretted. The bridge and 5 of the saddles look original, one saddle is changed. It has been pro-setup and plays great. It comes with a non original case.
