FENDER 1973 Stratocaster 3 Colour Sunburst 

The CBS Fender 1973 Stratocaster, featuring a 3-colour Sunburst finish and maple neck, is a unique chapter in Fender’s history. Despite the mixed opinions on CBS-era Fenders, these guitars hold a special charm and have left a significant mark in the world of music. For collectors and players, a well-preserved 1973 Stratocaster is not just a valuable possession, but a source of immense joy and satisfaction, offering a direct connection to a bygone era of musical excellence.

The early 1970s marked a significant transition period for Fender, as the company was adjusting to the new management under CBS, which had acquired Fender in 1965. Instruments from this period capture a unique blend of pre-CBS quality and post-CBS changes, making them attractive for collectors.
