1962 FenderStratocaster – Fiesta Red

Here we have a stunning 1962 Fender Stratocaster in factory original Fiesta Red! The early 60s saw a few changes from Fender’s manufacturing process. In an effort to save money and conserve wood, Fender started producing necks with a “veneer” of rosewood for the fretboard, instead of a thicker “slab” style. This particular example has the more desirable “slab” board, with clay dot inlays that have aged beautifully. The Fiesta Red finish on this guitar is particularly vibrant, and the wonderful aging shows some of the Desert Sand undercoat. This guitar has been professionally refretted to ensure many more years of easy bending and playing!
