Here she is after 12 years of building and putting her together. Finally got her to be the real deal. This Fender USA early 60's reissue Sunburst Stratocaster. Is as close to Rory’s would have been when he bought his from Crowleys Music Store in Cork back in the early 60’s. It’s even wired up how Rory had his Strat with volume & master bottom tone control ;)

There’s only one thing I’m not happy with about my Rory ‘61 lookalike Fender USA Sunburst Stratocaster. It’s a wonder you guitar geeks didn’t spot it. Well it’s the pickguard / scratchplate. It hasn’t got the early strat models little curved piece out for the truss rod. Plus been asking Daniel Gallagher today what exact colour was it when Rory bought it out of Crowley’s Music Store In 1963. Daniel isn’t sure what exact colour that it was going on how it looks today. As obviously gone an off white due to wear & tear and age. Can’t tell even on close up still shots of Taste Live at IOW dvd. I asked Daniel to ask his Dad if he remembers what the exact colour was in 1963. It’s either 1. White 2. Off White (Cream) or less likely 3. Mint Green? Has any of you guys out there got a really clear colour photo of The Taste or even better his Showband days of Rory’s ‘61 Fender Stratocaster?
