I'm pondering a strat that I found in a local music shop. i'd like to buy it, but i'm not sure about the authenticity of the model and don't want to overpay. It's listed as a 63' Strat from the Custom Shop. Has the custom shop emblem on the back of the headstock, nitro seafoam green paint and serial beginning with D on the neck plate. Was the custom shop even operating as early as 63'? My thought was that's awful early for a CS, but if it's real i'll buy it at the listed price. If not, i'll still get, as it sounds and plays great, but i won't pay that much.

The Fender Custom Shop started in 1987. It's a reissue of a 1963 Strat. A real vintage 1963 Strat will run about $20,000 or more!
