Vintage Guitar Case Studies

1954 Fender Stratocaster

1954 Fender Stratocaster Perth Western Australia
The 1954 Fender Stratocaster is a hand-crafted masterpiece from the first year of production from Leo Fender.

Offered for sale only nine years following the end of World War II, these guitars are, to this day, one of the few invented commercial items in modern industrial history which maintain a level of quality above nearly all of the subsequently produced models.

This is a common theme amongst all Fender guitars and amplifiers dating from 1954-1965, the pre-CBS era of Leo Fenders’ company.

1963 Fender Stratocaster

1963 Fender Stratocaster
A decade after the introduction of what was arguably one of Leo Fender’s greatest inventions, the 1963 Fender Stratocaster had evolved significantly from the maple board equivalents of the 1950’s.

Depending on your viewpoint of the L-series range, they were more refined after a few key evolutionary developments over the preceding decade. Mid way through 1962, Fender changed the design of the board from a slab with a straight bottom connected to the neck to a veneer which was curved over the neck at a 7.25″ radius.

1963 Gibson Les Paul Custom

1963 Gibson Les Paul Custom Polaris White
This 1963 Gibson Les Paul Custom was the 13th guitar made by Gibson in 1963. As such it shares a lot of 1962 components including the sideways vibrola which is in good working condition.

This particular piece also features three high output ‘PAF’ (Patent Applied For) pickups which are noticeable for their distinctive tone, a three screw scratch plate, a feature of 1961 and 1962 Customs.

Hence it is most likely this piece was made in 1962 and remained in the factory before a serial was placed on it in the first production line of January 1963.
