Early customorder Strat in stunning Dakota Red with matching headstock. A reissue of a 1962 Stratocaster, the pinnacle of the 60s Strats. Neck made by “King of Feel” Herbie Gastelum and the body by Art Esparza (see photo’s of stamps). And the best thing is, that it has been in its case for 30 years. It has never been played. A New Old Stock guitar!

Originally it has a brown tortoiseshell pickguard, but I must say that I do not like the color combination with the Dakota Red finish, so I replaced the pickguard with a mintgreen three ply Fender pickguard and pure vintage 60s knobs and pickupcovers. Of course I can put the tortoiseshell pickguard back on this Strat, if you prefer that.

Send me a message if you’re interested! This guitar will be shipped from The Netherlands, so if you live in the EU there will be no taxes! If you live outside the European Union, please drop me a message. This way we can figure out what shipment and taxes will be.

Because this is a very early Custom Shop model, no specs are available from Fender.
Weight: 3.685 kg
Neck: 60s C shape by Herbie Gastelum, slabboard Rosewood fretboard
Pickups: Probably Texas Specials
