Here’s an early Christmas present for those who appreciate the value and unbeatable feel of a true classic instrument – in this case a beautiful 1961 Fender Stratocaster. This guitar would be worth $20K + if it was totally original. In this case, because it has a (beautifully done) pro refinish and a couple of updated parts, it is being offered to an astute investor for AUD$9,995. But only for a limited time.
This genuine ’61 slab-board Strat is being offered for a non-negotiable price of $9995 for the month of December 2015. If it not sold before 2016 it will withdrawn from sale, so be decisive and bag a fabulous instrument that is also an excellent investment, because at this price, it ain’t gonna get better.

This is a beautiful sounding Strat – clear, bell-like tones, that wonderful woody sound from the neck pickup, plenty of snarl from the bridge p/u, and lots of pop & cluck from the in-between p/u settings.
