Vintage Stratocaster:
This is a one owner/player. Guitar was purchased end of 1959. Played by me professionally for approximately 5 years then rarely just for personal enjoyment. This Strat was played by Ike Turner, on stage, when I would sit in with the band. He was my mentor during the early to mid 60's. Fun times! (Let me make this clear, this is not Ike's guitar, but was played by him when I would sit in to jamb) Compared to other 59's out there, this gem is better than all of them. Check out the minimum, less than normal wear. Only a few scratches and nicks as per photos. All three colors of the tri-color sunburst are still in tact. Not faded. No cracks, No breaks. Pick guard is perfect! Neck is fast with excellent feel! Never been re-fretted or modified in any way. (See Note below) Check out the photos, you will be impressed. This is one owner/player and 100% original. Detailed photos / close-ups of all aspects have been carefully photographed and documented for authenticity. Spring cavity shows 9/59. No date on neck end which is another sign it is a 59 Strat. (I am accepting sealed bids.) Everything is original and works beautiful. I can't give exact weight as I used a regular scale, which is not accurate, so I won't quote the weight. Whatever an original 59 Strat weighs is the weight. Note: The original strat three-way pick-up selector switch is able to capture unique pick-up sounds in between the three pick-ups as well, as this was the thing to shoot for to get that rare unique Strat "sound" back in the early 60's. This was achieved by eliminating the tips of the click stops in the original switch so it would not click anymore. Pickups read: neck = 6.42 / Mid = 5.83 / Bridge = original pick up not working. (I took Strat to Guitar Center to tech person for meter readings and they originally got a reading on the bridge pick up they thought, but when I took it to a Vintage Guitar Shop, for a second verification, they checked it and said that the existing original bridge pick up needs to be rewound) Included are all original accessories, Strap (not shown) Tremolo Arm, Rare Bridge Polished Cover Plate, Polishing Rag and wrapper bag, Instruction Manual, Keys (2) to OHSC with original paper envelope, Back White Cover Plate, Original Hard Shell Case with working spring locks.
