Below is I'm showing my buddy Ron this Beast.. He takes a couple spins on it.... Yes he plays funny..:)
1963 ORIG Turtle Fender Stratocaster Eddie Vegas BEST!
I took a 100% 1963 Strat that had 1-63 Body Date, Jan 63 Neck date. This was my own Strat. I got sick of the 1st 3 frets have a lot of wear. So I had the 1st 3 frets replaced. Something keep bugging me to do what I did. You do see my shop. I have the goods to Build!
I am a Strat nut. Never goes away, I never ever get sick of Fender. I like this job, blessed, pays the bills
I had another Killer favorite Aug 63 Strat I had on many builds of mine. It has pro med size fret job, nice perfect bone nut.
I am sick of 99,9% of well played Strat's Sunburst with Green Guards. Hey, you look like everyone else. I am not like everyone else*****:)
I took a Real Highly Valuable Turtle Shell Pickguard and it's Orig Metal shield installed it on this Strat. Put my favorite re fretted 1963 Fat Profile, Glass playing Smooth Neck and put on it.
Then my head still didn't sit right. Remind you this was a 100% 63 Strat I started with. Get over that 100% all original, it's a player...Not Collector grade.
The bridge pickup was only 5.51k on this. I put 6.79k ALL original bridge pickup from my shop, it was a 1962.. 62,63 ALL THE SAME. But this was freaky high readings, and again 100%
So real quick, I swapped out Neck, Bridge Pickup, Pickguard and Shield.. Did my Perfect Set Up...
NOW SIT BACK....L@@K @ PICTURES.. ARE YOU WITH ME OR NOT!
PS.. MOST pics have new solid tone pro tuners, THERE ARE CORRECT 1963 SINGLE LINE KLUSONS on now.
Every guitar player that had any famous Strat.. SRV, Clapton, Gilmour all built their Strat's from trial and error AND Experience in doing! I have bought, sold, traded, built more Fender Strat's than anyone on earth probably. I am not the best player, but I am the Strat Man.. sounds weird but you get my point........ Price is for 1963 Fender Strat with Brown Case Only. You won't be disappointed, and I just mite have to keep. Weight is 7.5lbs. All pups are 6k, bridge Hot 6.8k. I filed inside 3 way slot on pickguard so switch glides nice and easy in all positions. This 3 way allows you to jockey it in # 2 & 4 postions easy. Pots are early 63, and all work quiet and smooth. THIS Strat Is kILLER!
Price is firm. Find another this Great, and the Guard will set you apart.. Unless you like being like everyone else..........!
Blow is this 63 EV Strat me playing in living room. The Strat is 1 of my Top 5, PRE CBS Fender Stratocaster That I ever owned or am selling!
