Up for sale is my 2011 Fender American Vintage Reissue FSR Thin Skin '61 Stratocaster (yeah, that’s a mouthful!) - this one in sonic blue with rosewood fretboard. The Thin Skins were factory special run AV reissues with some modern appointments like 9.5" radius necks and 6105 tall frets - some for specific dealers (Dave’s, Wildwood), but I think this one was a general release. They’ve done several of these special runs over the years, but not many 61’s.

The stock pickups were Fat 50’s - nice, but not particularly “60’s” sounding . They’ve been replaced with a set of Klein Epic 62 pickups. These were a huge upgrade over stock, and are some of the best vintage 60’s style pickups you can find. (and sadly, seem to be a bit difficult to get right now)

The idea behind the "thin skin" series was to have a thin nitrocellulose-only finish, with no polyurethane undercoat. Fortunately, this one has mostly escaped the fate of a lot of the Thin Skins, which tend to get chipped pretty easily. Not perfect, however - I found 2 small scuff marks on the back top edge, one very small mark near the neck plate, and one near the bottom of the neck pocket. Ran out fo room for pictures here, but there are a lot more available. Frets are in great shape - weighs 8 lbs. 1 oz.

Everything originally included with this guitar will be included (Certificate of Authenticity, hang tags and other documents, trem arm, strap,, bridge cover). Original special brown tolex hardshell case as well.


Now $1,900 firm - at least for now, not looking for any trades.
