1964 Fender Stratocaster$45,000.00
Candy Apple Red, custom color, EX+. Formerly owned by Sheryl Crow with some great case candy. Some time ago Sheryl asked us to consign her beautiful and clean CAR Strat. Now, years later, the subsequent owner has decided to retire and is selling this fine guitar. It comes with all the accompanying ephemera like a photo of Sheryl using this guitar in the studio, backstage passes, and a hand-signed letter of provenance from the owner of Willie’s.
The guitar is all-original with finish checking in the in a lovely horizontal pattern but showing no major dings or scratches or rock ’n roll abuse. This guitar has clearly received loving care.
This guitar is offered as a clean pre-CBS custom color “L”-plate Fender. The Sheryl Crow connection adds interest but no markup. However, our dear friend Sheryl has sold over 50 million records, won 9 Grammys, and even successfully worked as an actress (30 Rock, Cougar Town, NCIS New Orleans, etc.). Her success from music teacher to one of Michael Jackson’s backup singers to superstar should be an inspiration to young women and indeed all aspiring musicians everywhere. Her last record “Threads” features Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Keith Richards, Stevie Nicks, Willie Nelson, and others.
Further, she simply loves guitars and is as big of a guitar geek as any of us. We love her. Look close at the photos and you’ll see an amazing-looking clean example of an iconic custom color pre-CBS Stratocaster with pearl dot inlays, “L” plate, green guard, and finish in excellent condition.
