1959 ORIG Fiesta Red Fender Factory Refin Excellent Shape Strat
I want to add that I just added a correct real NOS Fender PRE CBS Decal on the headstock today..4-26-2016. The Strat was refinished body, oversprayed neck and new decal back in 1982. The many pictures and video have this reissue decal and is under the thin oversprayed nitro when it got a make over. I choose to just add the Word Fender over the top of Fender. I was not to take the 36+ year old finish off as this little thing I did made the Headstock more correct looking. The 1st 8 pictures are with this do over I did. It mite sound minor, but it looks as a real PRE CBS Custom Color left Leo's Shop 57+ years ago..:) and I'm not taking all new pics..:) The Fender part fit over the Fullerton reissue nice, the rest did not line up perfect as reissue deals are not perfectly correct.
This Strat is a 11 out of 10
All 100% Original, but was sent back to Fender, (only someone who knows someone can have this done) in 1982 for a Body refinished. Neck oversprayed with new decal. Original finish is on neck under a slight spray over. Both Body and Neck are Nitro
This was done at the Old Fender Fullerton Plant. Same factory where Leo started and built these PRE CBS Gems
Look at the pickguard, saddles, tuners, string tree, screws, case. You think is was fake it's so clean.
This is What A Custom Color Fiesta Red Fender 1st year Slaboard Strat would of looked like buying it new, 57+ years ago. No marks to say, no belt rash. I mean it was polished and probably just looked at most of these years
Now. I like stuff beat up, wear earned wear, paint falling off. BUT... Seeing Vintage this Dam Clean, Plays Perfect. Is Perfect in Every Way, is also nice
If this was all 100% this clean, it be $75,000. Ok the body has be re finished. I'll give you that. But done by Fender 36 years ago. I mean it's a perfect deal. I'll add, not 75k either
Pickups are all over 6k strong.
I mean that pickguard is worth $5,000. Fine one cleaner with no cracks or shrunk crazy on earth. You won't!
This is NOT a everyday find this Great. I mean the dang case is Best I ever seen.
I have black light pictures on neck and pickguard. I took the whole assembly apart, to prove pickguard is real. Custom color finished do not glow under black light because no clear over them. The clear is what ages and gives the glow
I have some pictures with a Orig Finish 1962 Fiesta Red, and a 1963 Dakota Red Orig finish to give you Sum Vibe!
The 1st picture is Correct Color. Some come out kind of orange, but Fiesta Red is a Red Orange. Well the 1st pic and video inside shows good correct color.
The Strat is calling me To Keep. Big Time. You never see 1950's great Strat's at this price everyday. They are getting dried up folks.*
