1963 Orig Dakota Red Fender Strat With Red Mahogany Body
For sale is this vintage 1963 Fender Stratocaster electric guitar. This particular Dakota Red custom-color Mahogany body example, serial number , is in extremely well preserved all original condition. This incredibly rare variant was produced during the short-lived period during which Fender experimented with the use of Mahogany bodies for Strats, Teles, as well as, other models. There is actually much precedence for Mahogany body Fender instruments to be finished in Dakota Red, almost more so than Sunburst, however, such examples are exceedingly rare, with very few having been documented. Do not miss out on this incredibly rare opportunity to buy one of the most collectible Pre-CBS Stratocasters ever made!
