In the year that The Beatles broke America, the Strat went through a number of changes to its decade-old design.
Most noticeably the early ‘spaghetti’ style Fender logo, an elegant and much-loved early design, was swapped out for the thicker ‘transition’ logo designed by Fender’s graphic designer Robert Perine.
By the end of the year, Fender had also done away with the clay dot markers on the neck (replacing them with Pearloid) and changed the pick guard material so that it was no longer made from the mint-green celluloid that has become synonymous with early Strats.
