Born in the Sixties: Electric Guitars
1961 Fender Stratocaster Tahitian Coral
This custom color isn’t found in any Fender catalogs from the era, but was noted on an old piece of masking tape found under the pickguard. Proof that this color is factory original can be seen after unscrewing the neck. An area of paint from the body has stuck to the neck leaving a bare spot in the neck pocket that is an exact match to the glob stuck to the neck. Photo and information from Dave’s Guitar Shop.
