Sold Fender CS Tone Quest 1960 Stratocaster Blonde ( Rare)

In 2006, Tone Quest magazine worked with USA Guitars, Lollartrons pickups, and Callham Bridges on a special run of Custom Shop team built 1960 stratocasters. The best wood was sourced, and Peter Stroud ( behind Tone Quest) has gone on record saying the prototype was one of the best strats he has ever played.. These were made in a very small run and seldom surface, quickly being snatched up...

Lightweight Ash body, RW board, 9.5 radius, Lollartrons pickups, medium C neck, lightweight ( no scale, but it is not a heavy guitar) 6105 frets, beautifully aged, and amazing to play.. Comes with OHSC and COA, case goodies.....don't let this one get away.

$2475 shipped ( no fee payment)...

Didn't these come with a tortoise shell pickguard? What is the neck shape like?

I have the 335 you are searching for. Hmm, tempting. Mine is an 84 Custom shop with Shaw's though. Not quite the year you are looking for. Good luck.

I have only played 2 and both had the white guard.
Are these the one's that were originally only sold by Dave's Guitars? If so, I had one, and it had a tortoise guard, which I changed to a white one -- and back to tortoise when I sold it.
