1962 left handed Fender Stratocaster in custom color Fiesta Red.
This is a rare bird! Back in 1961, the original owner of this guitar walked into his local music store to buy a Jazzmaster in Fiesta Red. The only problem? He was left-handed. Fender had not started to make left handed Jazzmasters yet so the local salesman suggested he order a Stratocaster. Being a big Ventures fan, the original owner would have rather had the Jazzmaster, but opted to go with the salesman's advice and order a Stratocaster. He chose his favorite color, Fiesta Red, and waited a year to receive it.
He sparingly used the guitar as he had a few other left handed guitars to play. It sat untouched in the case nearly its whole life. We have a photo of him playing the guitar in 1964 and a photograph from the day we purchased it from him.
This Strat is completely original with no modifications, breaks, or repairs. It has a full C-shaped neck and great pickup voicing and output. Comes with its original case.
