I think he said he had the pickups rewound to be a little SRV hotter, and it does SCREAM. Blues PRE CBS Fender Chime!!!
As you see black light pictures show Glow Yellow, and orig Nitro finish***
The original owner back 1965 the Fender Decal was flaking off some, he took it to a Fender dealer and installed a new decal. I got there Strat as you see it, but I could not live with a 65 decal on a PRE CBS 1962 Strat.....
Back then you could do this. So All on this 62 Strat is 100% Original Finish... Nitro..
Weight is 7-1/4lbs..
Aug 62 Neck Date.. PS: SRV #1 Strat was a 62 Neck, and NOT A Slaboard...and Eric Johnson's Real 1962 Strat I got is 7-1/4lbs..
6302 both tone pot dates.. That is 2nd week 1963, I'm calling it a 1962...:)
THIS IS THE MAGIC Weight for the BEST Bell Tone..
