This is a wonderful example of Fender’s famous Stratocaster from the mid-60’s with some Rock Star ownership history. George Terry was a local player here in Hollywood Florida & was as big as anyone back in the day while playing w/Eric Clapton for years as well as having royalties from writing the infamous “Lay Down Sally”. George has owned many Stratocasters over the last 50 years & this is one he used back when touring w/Mr. Clapton. Its alder body has been refinished in a clear lacquer w/some black anti-hum spray in its cavity. The original Rosewood Neck is dated from August 1965. It’s been refretted for sure & has 1 extra screw hole & a 2nd string tree added. The spaghetti logo appears original but not likely. Its loaded w/a trio of original pickups dated to 2-12-65 in a nice white’gard. Her 3 pot codes date to the 14th week of 1965. It’s wearing a set of Kluson double line tuners. This Strat is excellent overall w/a great feel & playability. It comes complete w/its original black tolex hard case that’s spray painted “Eric Clapton Group” & Georges typical warning of a “Delicate Electronic Instrument”. It also sports the initials GT SB for George Terry ! Lastly check out the photo of George in the middle surrounded by Eric to his left & Todd Rungren to his right. Imaging how many time George played Lay Down Sally on this as well as you know Eric played this a few times over the years (see pic). What a piece of Music history in this bad boy !
