Unicorn Alert: the 1974 Rainbow Strat

As a lefty and as a vintage guitar player/collector, I have always looked for the next unicorn.

I think I found one yesterday when I bought this crazy 1974 Fender Stratocaster in what looks like a factory finish (perhaps for a trade show).

The interesting part is that it comes with black bottom pre cbs strat pickups and what looks like untouched soldering.

I got this guitar from a dealer who got it from a memorabilia auction in the UK.

Now I am dreaming of finding a picture of the guitar back in the days.

Yowza. What a find! Looks to be metallic colors as well. How very cool.

Fingerboard looks very good with reddish accents.

Personally, I dig the 'TORRES' '17' stamps. Maybe a nickname for this one emerges...?

Congrats, fellow southpaw. Enjoy in good health!
