I have always wondered this and i just now decided to do something about my curiosity. I mean it would have taken a strat long time to burn away to ashes.
I dunno, but Mayer has a replica of it.
Monterey strat is a type of cheese, right?
It was probably either repaired or stripped for parts and thrown away. In the 1960s fucked up strats were everywhere and nobody knew they’d be collectibles in fifty years. Seymour Duncan claims that he worked in one repair shop that used 50s strat necks for firewood if it was cheaper to replace a neck than repair it.
