Comments The 1960 strat was an exceptional instrument, and it’s clear from this reissue example why the design has remained basically unchanged. This guitar is in excellent condition and the greatest visible wear seems to be on the volume control numbering.As a Custom Shop model, the wood selection is a bit better and the neck’s maple has a fair amount of tight curling. The body is light yet resonant and overall the guitar is comfortable and attractive.

If you want to know what a 1960 Strat would have been like when new – there is a pretty good chance this will tell you.
