This auction is for a 1960 Fender Slab-board blue Stratocaster.



This a very cool guitar, here's the story;

A friend bought it in Buenos Aires about 6 years ago, and it had been there for a long long time.

It was sold to him as a 1960 all original guitar, custom lake placid blue etc.

Their economy was about as bad as ours is today, so he could afford it.

He thought he had stumbled into a goldmine guitar, a custom color all original 1960 strat.

Now it's clearly not that, although it did a good enough job to fool several reputable dealers into
believing that's what it was.



A lot of people have looked at the guitar and given different opinions, everything from ''well the finish blacklights as original'' to ''total parts guitar worth $4-8k''. 



Finally he had it completely taken apart by Mandolin Brothers, and they concluded that it's made of so many different kind of parts that it's impossible to say -- maybe newer or non-Fender body, Fender neck (dated 6-60), pickups are real strat pickups from 1964, original bridge plate and tuners and some other non-original hardware.

Basically, they said to consider it equivalent to a modern custom shop guitar, that just happens to be made with
vintage parts.   It's a killer guitar, sounds amazing and plays great, certainly the equal of any new high
end strat, and has lots of old parts in i
