Hamish Stuart’s Mid-1970s Fender Stratocaster Used With Average White Band And Paul McCartney

Hamish Stuart 1970s Fender StratocasterMid-1970s Fender Stratocaster, originally sunburst, owned from new by Hamish Stuart (pictured here with his strat), and played on live shows and records with his band, the award-winning Average White Band, then later with the Paul McCartney band. In the early 1980s Fender supplied Hamish with a vintage ’62 style Stratocaster reissue neck, which was fitted, and the guitar was refinished in Fiesta Red. This is how the guitar currently appears, and is how it was in the Paul McCartney band. Featured as played by Hamish in a couple of McCartney live DVDs, and used on countless live shows. A really great guitar, owned and heavily used by one of the UKs great musician/songwriter/singers. There are not many guitars that have played so many original artist hits in concert as this one! A great guitar to own for any McCartney or AWB fan, or any musician needing a cool instrument. A keeper! Plenty signs of use, but still in good condition. Comes with a photo of Hamish with the guitar and a detailed letter with the complete history of this beautiful Stratocaster.
