Yesterday, I acquired a (CBS?)'65 Strat! Color is "natural". The frets are a bit flat, the hardware is rusted, but it still plays great! It sure is a change from my other guitar.

I have a ~1963 guitar. Its a hagstrom futurama which is sweed i think... somewhere in europe anyway. They don't make hagstrom anymore, but they are a lot like fender. Alot of the old fenders you could mistake for a hagstrom. I'm not sure who copied who.

Oh look at this!!! http://www.hagstromguitars.com/
that wasnt there a few monts ago... looks like they are back "after 20 years of abscense".

I have a question for any Fender fanatics out there. Would my guitar be a pre-CBS or a CBS guitar? The serial number is in the pre-CBS to CBS over lap and while the it has a small headstock, the neck plate has the "F" that the CBS guitars had.

You should get new hardware. (I.E. Screws) Theyre easy to install.


but make sure they are official fender ones if you do, otherwise the value will be even more decreased (as in if you change hardware at all)

I was thinking about that, but I wanted to keep it as original as possible.

WOW!! What a guitar! How much did it set you back if you don't mind me asking? Is it all original? I have been looking for something like that for a long time and the sellers have refused all my offers for such an instrument. I've only seen 1970's ones. That's a keeper!! Fenderforum.com should help you with that Strat question.
