This is an “all original” 1963 Fender Stratocaster. Everything on this guitar is completely original. Hardshell case included.
Like 1962, very little changed about the Stratocaster for the production year of 1963. Sales were still extremely strong, and the Stratocaster continued to etch out its place as the one of the world’s most popular and iconic instruments. Some very minor changes seen in 1963 include a subtle shift in the shape of the pickup selector switch and a change in the location of the pickguard screw above the front two pickups. Also, by 1963 the “veneer” style of Rosewood fingerboard had become standard.
