A selection of guitars from each year of the 1960s are highlighted
1965 Sonic Blue Fender Stratocaster #104234
This rare 1965 Sonic Blue Strat has details common to Strats made during this transitional period. The November 1965 neck date shows that this is one of the last small headstock Strats made until the 1980s. Other traits include Gold Transition Logo (designed by Fender photographer Bob Perine), pearloid position markers, double line Kluson Deluxe tuners and an "F" stamp neck plate. This guitar also came stocked from the factory with large frets (often seen in 1965). Photo and information from Dave's Guitar Shop.
