This has just arrived and these are getting very difficult to find in stock anywhere. It is a Fender American Original Series 60’s Strat in three color sunburst. What an amazing guitar. If you haven’t got £20,000 plus for a real Vintage then this could be the next best thing (especially if the Vintage one you bought turned out to be a fake).

Fender says:

A period of change, both for Fender and for pop culture as a whole, the 1960s saw the Strat mellow slightly as it grew up. The white pickguard was updated to mint green, and the fingerboard was switched from the original maple to rosewood, adding a smoother note to the Strat’s clear, articulate voice. The American Original ’60s Stratocaster keeps these refinements intact while adding modern feel and pickup switching to the iconic instrument that helped birth guitar rock as we know it.

The wax-potted Pure Vintage ’65 single-coil Stratocaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. The thick “”’60s C”” neck profile and the 9.5″”-radius fingerboard enhances playability. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware-including a six-point synchronized tremolo bridge- vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood “”breathe”” naturally with resonant tone, it also ages in a distinctively appealing way.

The American Original ’60s Stratocaster is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the choice of legends.
