    1962 Fender Stratocaster Sonic Blue Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 87428. All original Sonic Blue Stratocaster from late 1962, the same color as George and John used on "Nowhere Man." The neck shows moderately heavy fretwear and may need a partial refret. Neck date is 20OCT62B on thicker early curve board. Electronics are original with pot date codes 304 6242 (42nd week of 1962). Neck pickup is weak but working (inducting) and will probably need to be rewound. Finish is worn from honest play as seen in photos. This is the Sonic Blue Stratocaster featured on the Antiques Road Show in October 2015, episode 21, season 19. Original hard case included. Has whammy bar. Condition: Good.
