Fender Stratocaster 1965 Lake Placid Blue A Neck


This 1965 Fender Stratocaster in Lake Placid Blue Metallic finish is 100% factory original except for a meticulous factory style refret. The custom color LPB is nicely ambered to a turquoise hue which looks fantastic against the bright white pickguard. But the custom color isn't the only rare feature here: it also has an uncommon "A" neck width measuring about 1.53" wide at the nut. It's a spectacular player which feels, looks, and plays exactly like original frets (before they get worn out!).
