A stunning example of an all original, collector grade, pre-CBS, clay dot, Spaghetti logo, Custom Colour Stratocaster finished in Candy Apple Red. The overall condition is excellent given the guitar's age, and the finish retains a vibrant deep red with no fade or yellowing.
The custom colour Candy Apple Red was used by Fender between 1963 and 1973. It was allegedly Leo's favourite colour, and the only custom colour that wasn't taken from car paint manufacturers such as Dupont. Consisting of a red translucent coat on a metallic silver base coat, Candy Apple Red was also the most difficult to apply.
The guitar is completely original, and besides the odd small ding shows hardly any sign of wear. It comes complete with it's original white Tolex hard case.
