The guitar had been loaned to the guitarist from Maroon 5 and was then on hold for him. The band then left to go on tour, so I scooped it up. It was originally purchased in Texas in 1958 by the guitarist for The Twisters and was used on several records. It started out as sunburst and was later oversprayed Olympic White (nitro), with White going right on top of the sunburst.
THIS STRAT WEIGHS 7.5lbs TOGETHER. AS YOU CAN SEE THE WHITE WAS DONE IN 1960s, IT BLACK LITES OUT LIKE FENDER DID IT.
