"This 1965 Stratocaster is largely original with only a few smaller replacement parts. The frets have been replaced with wide frets. The bone nut is a replacement as is the 5 way switch, strap buttons and saddle height screws ( the saddles themselves are original as is the bridge ). The headstock has been oversprayed to preserve the logo though the rest of the guitar's finish is original. The D shape maple neck's finish has been sanded down. The neck dates 2 JUL 65 B. Note: the rosewood fretboard is particularly dark and rich looking on this guitar.
Everything beyond that is original. The Kluson Deluxe double line tuners, the 3 ply white pickguard, the trem arm, etc. The solder joints on the volume pot have all been touched up. The back plate is missing.
The grey back single coil pickups date to 9/9/65. Their outputs are as follows : Neck, 6.12K - Middle, 5.7K - Bridge, 6.12K.
The pots date to the 14th week of 1965 ( code : 137 6514 )
This 1965 Fender Stratocaster comes with its original hard shell case. Guitar weight is 8.11 lbs and serial # is L91216."
