Anybody ever seen green used as undercoat on a vintage black stratocaster from 1968??
How GREEN is it? A pic perhaps.
just a guess: maybe it's yellowed or greenish aged fullerplast pore filler
Refin over ocean turquoise?
Sounds like a refin.
Here are some pictures!! http://www.vintageandrare.com/product/Fender-Stratocaster-1968-Black-13255 . The guitar has an unbelievable sticky neck almost impossible to play!! The body seems fake to me and the cavity is a little wider than the neck??
"Pots and condensator was changed in 1980."
WHATS A CONDENSATOR???
Isn't that the part that stores the water?
were they meaning capacitors?
Tarnish; from all that water!
"Kondensator" is the danish word for capacitor.
So!! No one seen this before??
Never seen it. Looks like a refin.
And there's enough stuff suspect i'd pass. Wrong year bridge, new pickguard...i'm getting a 'partsocaster built around an orignial neck 'vibe.
Could be wrong, but that's my vibe.
Thank you Mike....
looks like a re-fin.
COULD be a factory re-fin (were they still doing that in '68?), but i doubt it.
if the neck is sticky, it's likely an improperly applied lacquer to add to the aging "look" of the guitar - one that hasn't cured properly.
judging by pics (and price!) i'd pass for a cleaner model, or at least one with less questions.
that guitar looks all wrong. i dont think that a fender body...
Isn't that a 70's era headstock? Looks too big to be 68'.
