1962 Orig Fender Stratocaster Partscaster Built by myself
I took my time and knowledge in this build.... With PRE CBS Parts and other over the Top Great Parts..
1: Neck is PRE CBS 1962 , SEPT 62 B.. Fat C Shape Neck Profile!!!
2: Tuners are Single Line Kluson 1962, High E is Double Line 1964
3: 1963 Original L series neck plate and neck plate screws
4: 1962 Original Pat Pend Bridge top plate and saddles. Trem block and tremolo claw are USA Fender Custom Shop
5: 1962 Original Pickup Covers, Vol & Tone Knobs, and Tip
1962 Original Output Jack
6: Pickup are early 80's Old School Lindy Fralin Vintage 1962 Blues. All read 6 to 6.1k Well Balance Set and just have Bell Tone! If you find that right combo in any Built Player Strat, get over if something is NOT all Vintage, or ALL PRE CBS.. If You get a killer Tone, One that makes you go. YAAAAA. I have learned to LEAVE IT Be! You want your ears content or your mind knowing ever little part is same year.. But never Play the Strat and collects dust?
7: The Body is a MJT 1962 early Mark Jenny Nitro Finished Alder body. Me and Mark started our own business about the same time over 20 years ago. You never know this wasn't a real pre cbs body all together.. Look at it.. AND It looks better than most $9,000 Orig Finish Pre CBS body... This Strat has many hours of gigged time to add to the wear and over all Vibe it has!
Pickguard is Fender Custom Shop Heavy Relic
All screws are 1962 Original Fender PRE CBS..
Case is a cool old one I had for years in my Stash!
So to put it simple, this is a Player that built a Strat from many PRE CBS Parts, and some 58+year old Fender Ore CBS
The Real PRE CBS Parts are worth more than this if I parted. This is one of my own Strat's I have right by my computer as I write this in my shop. It plays PERFECT, It SOUNDS PERFECT.. This is Better Than any Fender Custom Shop Built Strat in my opinion and I have no reason to lie on that..This Neck is 58+ years Old. Brazilian Rosewood, Nitro Finish, PRE CBS Leo Fender Built! Perfect PRO Re Fret Job with Vintage Tall frets. That have been played in and about 80% fret life left., The Strat plays like butter and just feels right and Vibe that makes you want to play it as soon as you see it!!
Un Plugged it Sings and Resonates for Ever!.....
7.9lbs..light weight Strat!
