Product Code: GS4526

$ 125,000.00


This '54 Strat, sn 0758, was the first Strat sold in West Virginia. It was bought from Herbert's Music in Charleston, WV, by a teenaged Wayne Moss. It was Wayne's only guitar for several years, and when he got calls to play bass, he just put heavier strings on this Strat. When he needed a new neck, Fender accidentally sent him a Tele neck, which he liked and kept. With the Tele neck, Wayne played the lead guitar part on Bob Dylan's "I Want You," from the Blonde on Blonde album. He also used this guitar with legendary Nashville groups Area Code 615 and Barefoot Jerry, as well as numerous sessions.

Through the years, this guitar has undergone quite a few changes, including a refinish (done by Wayne), body rout for a mini-toggle switch (now non-functional), and replaced pickups, covers, pots, knobs and pickguard. It comes with the Telecaster neck as well as the original neck.
