This Sale is for the 1963 7/63 Strat Body with Strap Buttons Only. I have pictures and a video of it as all 100% Original, and some just yesterday I threw on other 100% PRE CBS Parts I have in my shop now. I do this because it give you the look, providence and you get to hear a PRE CBS Body before you maybe purchase it.. NO WHERE will you get this much attention and work on a part..:)
I spent 16k For a 100% 1963 Strat to offer Great never seen Rare PRE CBS Vintage Parts. Original parts. part.. You see maybe a 64, 65, 66 all original bodies, never a July 1963...Another fact is the body is 100%, no extra screw holes. Worm hair still present in bridge pickup cavity. Router marks, nail holes, body date
If you know PRE CBS Fender finishes you will see a good amount of Nitro finished sink into the seam where the 2 piece, sometimes 3 pieces of wood is glued together. It's just cosmetic.. This body is so vibrant and a Bell Tone and nicer clean shape. I took the time and funds to ship it to
Lays Guitar, in Akron Ohio. I have use and don't many, many.. more many high dollar purchases., custom work, that I am not set up or want to do.. BUT I like fixing, making guitar's better, or restoring them. I really love m,y job and it's funny I never get sick of it.. Truly blessed on all ends.. ( Not blessed on women who come into a marriage with not $1, or 1 frying pan.. Then leave.. With enough cash to buy a house and furnished it... because it's the American way..:)
Dan Shinn the owner personally did the small touch up.. He carefully heat steamed a tiny paper thin sliver... (really like paper) of basswood into the imperfection in the finish
No re painting AT ALL.. He buffed it out and blended that area only. and it takes more time to do it right. Not many luthiers even do it., It be like $600 and many wouldn't pay that. buffed out that area. No other finish applied or taking off. This cost me $250 and it is a not a couple of hours and one must be patient and love their job.
It is smooth and level . I also knocked off 3k in the price.. I pick up the body on my way back from a NY vacation recently.
